OTTAWA – Social service workers from across the country will meet in Ottawa for three days this week to plan strategies for improving public services and protecting their working conditions. Confronted with chronic underfunding, they will join forces to make their voices heard and to remind people that they offer vital services to children and other vulnerable persons.

Françoise David, a feminist, environmentalist and social justice activist, and Linda Duxbury, a professor at Carleton University’s business school, will address the delegates.
