FindASocialWorker.ca: Online directory of social workers in private practice in Ontario. This directory is provided as a free service to individuals or organizations wishing to locate and engage the services of a social worker. 

As other professions increasingly have online directories, it is vital that social workers also have an online presence, and that this is reflected in listings across Ontario. We encourage all private practitioners, with both non-clinical and clinical practices, to take advantage of this opportunity to promote the services that they offer. (We also encourage all OASW members to make use of this excellent resource to make referrals to your colleagues across the province.) Medical and legal professionals, government agencies, EAPs, private companies and individuals increasingly turn to the internet first when seeking social work services. The feedback that we have received from the public about www.findasocialworker.ca has been overwhelmingly positive - and now we have made it even better!
