All Canadians have the right to safe, high-quality health services
This is what Accreditation Canada is all about. Through our standards and accreditation programs, we work with health care organizations to help them improve quality, safety, and efficiency so they can offer you the best possible care and service.
We are an independent, not-for-profit organization that has been improving health quality through accreditation since 1958. We accredit more than 1,000 organizations representing over 7,000 sites and services across Canada. These are the organizations you count on to provide safe, quality health care—hospitals, walk-in clinics and labs, emergency medical services, long-term care homes, home care services, mental health services, and community health programs, among others. We also accredit provincial health authorities and health systems.
Excellence in quality health services for all.
Driving quality through innovative approaches to accreditation.
Within a collaborative environment committed to quality, client service and professional growth, our values are excellence, respect, integrity, and innovation.
Accreditation Canada is a member of ISQua, the International Society for Quality in Health Care.
