BCCSW extends Respect, Dignity and Healing. Residential School and Indigenous-Specific Racism Statement: READ HERE
As the regulatory body for the profession of social work, the British Columbia College of Social Workers has authority to recognize individuals as qualified to practice the profession through awarding the title of Registered Social Worker (RSW) or Registered Clinical Social Worker (RCSW).
Anyone representing himself or herself as a social worker must be registered with the BCCSW unless employed as a social worker by one of the exempt employers listed in the Social Workers Regulation.
Through registration, social workers make a public commitment to hold themselves accountable for their practice through adherence to the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice.
