Aurora social work program should be restarted, expanded to meet demand: report

October 12, 2018

A social work program currently on hiatus at Aurora College in the Northwest Territories should be both restarted and expanded, according to a 60-page review conducted by the territorial government. The review was released earlier this week by Yellowknife Centre MLA Julie Green, who reportedly needed to obtain the report through an access to information request after the Department of Education allegedly refused to share it with her. The report states that social workers are in high demand in NWT, and that the program should be restarted and expanded in order to help meet this demand. CBC
