CCA is a national non-profit organization offering accreditation specifically tailored to community-based health and social services across Canada. Accreditation is a process that provides assurance from a respected third party that the accredited organization meets all commonly accepted standards of good practice. These standards address all aspects of the organization, including governance, finance, risk management, human resources, relationships with our communities, and the quality of programs and services. It is a process that is dynamic, ongoing, and encourages organizations to strive for continuous improvement, excellence, innovation, and learning.

Accreditation is one way for an organization to demonstrate to our clients and funders that we are operating responsibly and providing responsive and quality services. Being a fully accredited organization is important in creating better health care and social services for our patients/participants, their families, and our communities. Accreditation allows organizations to understand how to make better use of their resources, increase efficiency, enhance quality and safety, and reduce risk. As an added benefit, it increases funder and patient confidence in the programs and services provided.

With 100% compliance with all mandatory standards, De dwa da dehs nye>s Aboriginal Health Centre is proud to be accredited by the Canadian Centre for Accreditation.
