Nova Scotia College of Social Workers addresses decolonizing social work
The new edition of the Nova Scotia College of Social Workers Connection magazine focuses on decolonization. From the registrar: "We must recognize that the profession of social work has been complicit in harm and has contributed to the genocide of Indigenous peoples in Canada. We therefore have an urgent and abiding need for social work - and social workers - to participate in reconciliation, decolonization and Indigenization efforts. As an organization that dedicates itself to protection of the public and aims to preserve and promote our profession, our College must be part of this work, starting by listening to Indigenous people and communities and following where they lead us; I hope we become an example that can lead others in turn."
