Important Information

The two-year Master of Social Work degree requires the completion of a practicum, as does the one-year MSW degree for non-thesis students. In Ontario, provincial laws require organizations to conduct police records checks for individuals who will be dealing with children and vulnerable adults. The police record check for practicum is required even if students have had a recent police records check completed for some other purpose. Students must apply in person by attending any main police station. The information released by the police as part of the records check might include existence of criminal convictions, outstanding charges, as well as any ‘incidents’ where there has been notable police contacts for at least the previous five years. If any such information is revealed on the police records check it may be difficult, if not impossible, for you to secure a practicum.
