Take Action on Mental Health This Election Season!

Ontario’s provincial election takes place on Thursday, June 2, 2022. The election represents a critical opportunity to elevate the voice of social workers and the clients we serve. Candidates from all political parties will be looking to build new local relationships, strengthen existing ones, and hear about the most pressing issues facing their local communities.

OASW has been busy meeting with all parties to raise the profile of social workers in our communities and to share our recommendations on issues that matter to our profession. This election, we are placing a special focus on advocating for policies that improve access to quality mental health care and well-being across Ontario – and to amplify these messages, we need your help!

Available by logging into our website, OASW’s Provincial Election Member Toolkit walks you through how to advocate, connect and communicate effectively with local candidates in your riding. The toolkit includes social media sharables, a template meeting request email, meeting guides and resources, as well talking points to help you engage with local decision-makers.
