CASW Code Of Ethics/NLCSW Standards of Practice

The Canadian Association of Social Workers (CASW) Code of Ethics (2005) sets forth the values and principles that guide professional social work practice. The NLCSW has adopted this Code of Ethics, and the CASW Guidelines for Ethical Practice (2005) to guide the practice of registered social workers in NL.  

The NLCSW Standards of Practice (2020), which are informed by the CASW Code and Guidelines, outlines the practice requirements for social workers in NL to ensure safe, ethical and competent professional practice.
