Reports and Plans
Accredited with Exemplary Standing
Accreditation is an ongoing process of evaluating a program or service against established standards of excellence. These standards examine all aspects of community care, from client safety and ethics to staff training and partnering with the community. At Community Support Connections, we voluntarily engage in the process of accreditation with Accreditation Canada, an independent, not-for-profit, and 100% Canadian organization with over 55 years of experience. Participating in accreditation demonstrates that we’re striving to achieve excellent quality and safety at our organization for our clients, volunteers, and employees and is one of the many tools that we use to monitor and improve quality at Community Support Connections.
In May 2021, Accreditation Canada conducted an on-site survey of our organization, and we were Accredited with Exemplary Standing! This is the highest level achievable and is an improvement from our last on-site visit. The on-site survey was an excellent learning experience and highlighted the ways in which we can make our services better. In an effort to be transparent about our quality improvement processes, we are making our Accreditation Executive Summary available. It highlights our successes and opportunities for improvement. If you have any questions about this report, please contact Will Pace.
All of our employees contributed to these outstanding results and we are very proud of everyone who works here and their commitment to quality improvement. Thank you to our amazing employees who contributed to this experience and to our Exemplary status!
