A degree in social work at the University of Ottawa provides a unique opportunity for students to study a critical approach to intervention practices in the fields of health and family-childhood, while taking into account the current realities faced by francophones in a minority context.

“My wish is to use my research to give a voice to those whose voices are forgotten or ignored, so that they can regain their power of agency.”
