Kinark Achieves Quality and Safety of Program and Services Accreditation

Kinark Child and Family Services has successfully achieved an Accreditation Canada Primer Award from Accreditation Canada following a voluntary assessment of our programs, services, and processes against standards of excellence. The decision followed an on-site survey in March 2022.

The accreditation process identifies what an organization is doing well and where to focus its improvement efforts. Kinark was evaluated against national standards and will use the results to continue to improve the quality and safety of our services to best support children and youth with complex needs and their families.

Previously, Kinark was granted a four-year accreditation by the Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA) in 2018.
