Together with our affiliate Health Standards Organization (HSO), Accreditation Canada inspires people to make positive change that improves the quality of health and social services in Canada and around the world.

According to Accreditation Canada, "Accreditation is an ongoing process of assessing healthcare and social services organizations against standards of excellence to identify what is being done well and what needs to be improved.

According to the website, accreditation is important because "it allows organizations to understand how to make better use of their resources, increase efficiency, enhance quality and safety, and reduce risk."
