Accreditation

The CDC is an accredited organization with the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, or CARF.

CARF is an independent non-profit accrediting body for health and human services internationally. Founded in 1966, this agency’s mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on enhancing lives of the persons served.To maintain accreditation with CARF, agencies must meet consumer-focused standards by continually measuring and improving the quality of their programs and services.

Our programs and services are measured across four outcome areas: access, efficiency, effectiveness, and satisfaction.An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation outcome has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable.In 2014, the Kitimat Child Development Centre was again awarded three-year CARF accreditation!
