The 2015 CASWE-ACFTS Conference will take place, once again, as part of the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. This year, the theme for the Congress will be “Capital Ideas / Le capital des idées.” The University of Ottawa, host of the Congress, is the largest bilingual university (French-English) in the world. Over 30 per cent of its 42,000 students taking courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels are Francophones; this number rises to 40 per cent if those studying in French immersion are also taken into account. In this setting, the School of Social Work is a Francophone institution operating within a linguistic minority context. This Conference therefore focuses on bringing together instructors, researchers, students and partners in the field of social work to hold discussions and a debate on issues intrinsic to the meeting of both official languages communities and the interaction of cultures, as well as the inclusion of minorities in all their many forms. We will thereby address the numerous concerns and issues that shape the present and future of our profession in Canada and abroad.
