THE COLLEGE OF SOCIAL WORKERS AND THE CHILDREN’S AID SOCIETIES OF ONTARIO

A conversation about the role that the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) plays in the Children’s Aid Societies. Perspectives are shared between PC politician Frank Klees (MPP), former CAS adoption client (and airline pilot) Edward Hickey, and family lawyer Alfred Mamo. Woven throughout the conversation is a visit to the College by the documentary’s director, and her encounter with the the College’s in-house legal counsel and Director of Complaints, Marlene Zagdanski. Critical issues include the College’s current policy not to enforce its mandate, and the Children’s Aid Society’s unethical practice to circumvent the law by employing unregistered social workers.
