30 years of experience, we have grown from an Alberta-based,
non-profit organization to servicing the whole of Canada in
a broad range of human service programs and we are committed to
continuing our growth.
We are dedicated to excellence in practice, support,
outcomes, and service, and as such our mission is a
commitment to a Peer Review process, based on best practice
standards, ensuring that the programs we accredit in the
human and health services community focus on service excellence. Our
vision is two-fold: to be the nationally recognized
benchmark for standards excellence and to support
organizations in utilizing our accreditation process to
evaluate their own policies and practices while learning and
growing as part of the experience.
We believe that our Standards and our Accreditation Process
should be developed in partnership. To that end, we
strive to work closely with everyone our process impacts and
maintain current research in both legislation and best
practice. Our knowledge of the needs of the organizations
and the people they serve continues to grow, and we continue
to grow along with it, creating standards that are a living
document in order to continually strive for excellence.
We also believe in a hands-on approach, working closely with
program personnel to ensure that they are aware of the
intent and meaning of the standards that we provide and are
able to implement them in a way that results in a successful
accreditation for their program. After all, the purpose of
accreditation is to support the creation and maintenance of
viable structures, processes and practices that allow
organizations to offer the best possible programs and
services for their clientele.
