CARF Canada operates as a private, independent, not-for-profit corporation providing an accreditation program for human services providers. Over the years, CARF International has built a reputation for its respected accreditation practices and is now able to provide well-established accreditation services in the fields of aging services, behavioural health, child and youth services, employment and community services, and medical rehabilitation. In recent years, several Canadian government ministries have endorsed CARF to provide accreditation services to their contracted providers.
Our Accreditation Committee is hard at work preparing all of our programs and leading staff in their preparation for our accreditation re-certification in June 2017.
