Any organization that contracts with the BC government to fund services of $500,000.00 or more is required to seek accreditation from a certified organization. This certificate, if earned, provides proof that the organization is fulfilling its contract with the Ministry of Children and Families in the best possible way and meets all standards set forth by the company examining (surveying) what we do. The Ministry will then continue to contract with Intersect.
This accreditation outcome, which represents the highest level of accreditation, is awarded to organizations that show substantial fulfillment of the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation outcome has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable. Further, an organization accredited for three years clearly indicates that present conditions represent an established pattern of total operations that is likely to be maintained or improved in the foreseeable future.
