North Lambton Community Health Centre Achieves CCA Accreditation
We are very pleased to announce that North Lambton Community Health Centre has been awarded a four-year accreditation by the Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA). The hard work, professionalism, and dedication of our staff and Board of Directors are clearly reflected in this significant achievement.
“To be CCA Accredited is truly a seal of approval,” says Mac Redmond, North Lambton CHC Board Chair. “Our stakeholders can be assured that we have undergone an extensive internal and external review process that measures our practices against sector and industry standards.”
Accreditation is a process that provides assurance from a respected third-party that the accredited organization meets commonly accepted standards for good governance, management, and excellence in service provision. It is one way that we demonstrate to our clients and funders that we are operating responsibly and providing responsive and quality services.
“One of the key benefits of participating in CCA’s accreditation program is that it promotes an ongoing culture of learning and quality improvement throughout the organization,” says Barbara Wiktorowicz, Executive Director, Canadian Centre for Accreditation. “By choosing to go through the CCA accreditation process, North Lambton CHC is demonstrating its accountability to the community and its commitment to providing the highest quality programs and services.”
North Lambton CHC was previously accredited by Community Organizational Health Inc. (COHI). In 2012, the Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA) was formed through the joint initiative of COHI and four other associations of community service providers, bringing together over 100 years of accreditation experience.
Kathy Bresett, Executive Director noted the North Lambton CHC thanks the over 50 partners we work with. Together, these partnerships strive to improve the wellness of the communities we serve. “Being CCA Accredited allows us to demonstrate our accomplishments at not only an operational level but also in our business management and community governance. With increasing pressure for public accountability, participation in the accreditation process promotes a quality and safety culture across the organization.”

About Canadian Centre for Accreditation (CCA)
In response to growing interest in a Canadian accreditation program tailored to community-based health and social services, five associations of community service providers came together to form the Canadian Centre for Accreditation. CCA is a national non-profit offering bilingual accreditation geared to community-based health and social service organizations. CCA accredits a wide range of community-based human service organizations with a modular, tailored program that promotes excellence and quality. Because its approach is rooted in community service values and contexts, CCA accreditation supports community organizations to meet value-added goals that go beyond achieving accreditation.
