Working with sensitive populations like abused children, refugees and victims of violence, Burnaby Family Life is keenly aware of the need to meet the best practices of the social services sector. In our commitment to professionalism and upholding the quality of service that our clients deserve, we have invited two separate international accreditation organizations to review our agency and hold us accountable to the highest level of standards and expectations for our sector.
Burnaby Family Life is proud to have been accredited by both organizations: The Council on Accreditation (COA) and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). COA awarded Burnaby Family Life a certificate stating that “COA is proud to welcome Burnaby Family Life to the Community of Excellence, that unique group of providers that meets the highest standards for professional performance.” In 2008, Burnaby Family Life was recognized with two exemplary awards by CARF for responding to the diversity of the community and building community capacity. We have recently been accredited again by CARF in July 2014 for another three years.
