VISION, VALUES AND MISSION

The Nova Scotia Association of Social Workers operates on the principle of humanitarianism, believing that people’s well-being is the most important goal for which to strive. Following from this are a focus on empowerment and a critical perspective on social, health and economic policy that makes clear our humanitarian mandate. Active support of an anti-oppressive framework for social work practice reinforces our commitment to diversity. Our work is connected to similar efforts undertaken by national and international associations of social workers.
