Buffalo is uniquely situated near the Canadian border, allowing for many opportunities and exchanges to take place across professions. Social work, a discipline that has a great international presence, holds both similar and differing characteristics North of the
border as it does here in the U.S.
This luncheon will highlight some key differences and fill in some gaps that students and practitioners may have in regards to what it is like to practice in Canada. Co-facilitators Carol F. Scott and Robyn Hodge, will provide a Canadian perspective on the realities of social work practice in Canada; including licensure expectations, service delivery, and core values. Those interested or curious in working in or engaging with populations in Canada are encouraged to attend.


Global to Local Luncheons are a 1-hour presentation on an international issue through the Social Work lens. Luncheons are presented by an expert in the topic area and food is catered by a local restaurant which is typically immigrant-owned. Free and open to public.

Luncheons are also streamed live via gotomeeting:
