Accreditation Canada is an independent not-for-profit that is 100% Canadian.  The organization has been around for more than 55 years and has set national standards and shared leading practices from around the globe in an effort to raise the bar for health quality. As the leader in Canadian health care accreditation, Accreditation Canada accredits more than 1,100 health care and social services organizations in Canada and around the world.

After months of preparation, Lumacare underwent the Qmentum Accreditation Survey with Accreditation Canada on June 12-15, 2017. Qmentum helps organizations strengthen their quality improvement efforts by identifying what they are doing well and where improvements are needed.

We are proud to announce, that we have been accredited Exemplary Standing with Accreditation Canada on our first Qmentum Survey!


According to Accreditation Canada, “Lumacare Services has gone beyond the requirements of the Qmentum accreditation program and demonstrates excellence in quality improvement. It is accredited until June 2021 provided program requirements continue to be met. Accreditation Canada commends Lumacare Services for it s ongoing work to integrate accreditation into its operations to improve the quality and safety of its programs and services.”

Organizations that have become accredited with Accreditation Canada do so as a mark of pride and as a way to create a strong and sustainable culture of quality and safety.

Our team prepared a special Accreditation Edition of our Quarterly publication The Lightpost. Please take a look at our Lumacare Lightpost – Summer 2017 Edition
