MCFD engaged extensively with our partners and others interested in social work oversight. This engagement explored oversight of all social workers in B.C., including social workers employed through private practice, health authorities, non-profit organizations, Indigenous and other communities and public-sector employers.
We took a flexible approach. As the engagement progressed, our processes evolved in response to information and insight gathered through discussions with partners.
Ultimately, this engagement is allowing MCFD to explore:
- The current state of social work oversight, including both the strengths and challenges; and
- Opportunities for improvement and/or transformation
- Discussions with partners, including Indigenous partners and communities, sector partners, and social workers;
- Feedback forms for social workers and for the public ; and
- Written submissions.
