Alliance Resources

The Alliance has developed, collated or collaborated on a number of resources to raise the profile of the social service workforce through greater understanding and appreciation of the composition and role of the workforce. The Alliance has also compiled data to show trends and the importance of an adequate workforce to address needs of vulnerable groups. Alliance members and others are encouraged to use these tools to advocate for greater planning, development and support of the workforce.

Background information



The Alliance has held three annual symposia to bring attention to data and trends affecting the social service workforce. Alliance Symposia bring together diverse stakeholders to exchange knowledge and discuss ways to strengthen this workforce. View the full recordings, event summaries and presentations.
