At Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary, we are committed to ensuring the highest quality of service and programming is provided to every child, youth and family we serve.
We voluntarily undergo accreditation to further our commitment to excellence, including CARF International and National peer evaluations.
Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)
Accreditation by CARF is voluntary, and Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary is proud to be recognized by CARF. Providers that meet CARF standards have demonstrated their commitment to being among the best available. CARF provides accreditation services worldwide for health and human service providers.
Each member camp of the Alberta Camping Association goes through a Standards and Accreditation program that ensures good practice and safety. The BGCC Camp Adventure is recognized as a safe, healthy, well-run camp that meets or exceeds mandatory standards and maintains best practises for camping in the province of Alberta.
National Peer Review
National Peer Review ensures clubs across Canada are achieving the Operational Standards and meeting Membership Requirements of being a Boys and Girls Club. Peer Review is unique in that it also celebrates the strength of our movement and builds capacity across clubs to share experiences, maximize resources and pursue promising practices. Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary was one of the first clubs in Canada to achieve a successful Peer Review.
Canadian Accreditation Council (CAC )
As an agency that receives funds and delivers case management services from the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF), Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary are accredited through a process facilitated by the Canadian Accreditation Council. The Accreditation ensures that consistent quality of care is provided to homeless individuals and families in the CHF’s Housing First programs.
The Child Care Licensing Regulation, set by the Government of Alberta, requires the minimum standards that must be met in a licensed child care program to ensure that the health, safety and developmental needs of children are met. Child Care licensing staff are trained to monitor child care program’s compliance with the legislation.
