Introduction During this semester I have learned a lot about different Aboriginal issues, and how they pertain to my future career as a social worker. For this final paper, I have chosen to explore the child welfare systems in Canada. This past summer, I worked as a summer student in child protection for the Ministry of Social Services. During this time, most of the parents and children I worked with were Aboriginals. I truly enjoyed the work I did during the summer, and would consider child protection as a future career option.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE – CTARA My decision to pursue graduate study at CTARA is underscored by my desire to contribute to the development of rural India as a part of my social responsibility. I have always considered education and technology as the only thing that can bring a new phase of development in India. Around 65% of the Indian population lives in rural India with 60% of the land in India as agricultural land which has a huge potential for growth and development. Technology can help tap this huge potential. Of late, rural development has assumed global attention especially among the developing nations.
