CANES Community Care is extremely proud to announce that the agency has once again achieved ‘Exemplary Standing’ from Accreditation Canada. This is the third consecutive award at the highest level – a three-peat. This four-year accreditation was recently awarded by the Accreditation Decision Committee following a site survey from September 19 to 21, 2022.
“This is a very significant achievement, and it is with great pride that the Board of Directors recognizes the competence, commitment and compassion of all our staff. The CANES team is essential to our success as an agency performing at the highest level” stated Doug Thomas, Board Chair. “I would also like to recognize Raveen Kalra, Chair of the CQI Committee and her volunteer members for the significant work they have done in reviewing our policies and procedures to ensure that CANES met all the Required Organizational Practices”.
“Our agency was tested on both the home support standards and the home care standards during this review – for a total of 616 standards that were applicable to CANES. And we met 614 out of 616 standards with minor recommendations on the unmet standards. This is an incredible achievement” noted Gord Gunning, CEO. “The Surveyors from Accreditation Canada noted that CANES Community Care has gone beyond the requirements of the Qmentum accreditation program and demonstrates excellence in quality improvement. They went even further to commend CANES for its ongoing work to enhance its clinical services and to integrate accreditation standards into its operations to improve the quality and safety of its programs and services.”
“We are so proud of this achievement and how hard our Managers, Supervisors and front-line staff work every day to deliver the highest quality care to our clients” stated Janet Sanchez, Senior Director of Quality and Integrated Care. “Even during the pandemic our staff worked tirelessly to improve and expand our services and our capacity. We look forward to continuing to improve our programs as we develop new programs to support our clients and caregivers.” CANES Community Care currently offers fourteen different care services to over 5,000 clients living in Woodbridge, Etobicoke, Malton, Brampton, Mississauga, Oakville, Milton, Halton Hills, Caledon, Orangeville and Dufferin County.
