September 28, 2023 - The Canadian Association of Social Workers (CASW) advocates for the safeguarding of the rights of 2SLGBTQIA+ youth in Canada. Recent actions and statements across the country from provincial governments and activists have sought to diminish and threaten the dignity of trans, gender fluid and queer children and youth. We want to reiterate our unwavering support for all 2SLGBTQIA+ people and, particularly at this time, children and youth. 

September 27, 2023 - On September 30th, CASW will honour the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day which serves as an important reminder of the profound impact of the Canadian residential school system on Indigenous children, families, and communities.  It is a day to honour survivors and to reaffirm our individual and collective commitments to reconciliation.

August 3, 2023 - CAMIMH publishes a submission to the 2024 Pre-Budget Consultation Process, calling on the federal government to pass a companion piece of legislation to the Canada Health Act called the Mental Health and Substance Use Health Care For All Parity Act – which equally values mental health, substance use health and physical health.

August 2, 2023 - Addressing the social determinants of health to improve quality of life in Canada must be a priority. CASW welcomes the recent investments made by the federal government to strengthen Canadian health and social systems. We are hopeful government will continue to focus on bolstering health and social conditions in collaboration with organizations, Indigenous communities and their provincial and territorial counterparts.
