Media Release

Indigenous Perspectives Society awarded three-year CARF accreditation

October 6, 2016

Victoria, British Columbia – CARF International announced that the Indigenous Perspectives Society has been accredited for a period of three years for its training programs: the Aboriginal Social Worker Training and the Reconciliation from an Indigenous Perspective Training. This latest accreditation is the second consecutive Three-Year Accreditation that the international accrediting body, CARF, has awarded to Indigenous Perspectives Society.

This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation 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 measurable, accountable, and of the highest quality. For more information about the accreditation process, please visit the CARF website at www.carf.org

The CARF Survey Report summary states that “IPS is a highly respected organization” with the “skills and knowledge to further the training and understanding for persons working in communities throughout Canada. There is ongoing research and innovative thinking to work toward social change. This is evident throughout the several training courses offered by IPS.”

Linda Lucas, Executive Director said how honoured the Society is to receive a second three-year accreditation award from CARF. “The Society staff are doing a stellar job and I commend them for the work they are accomplishing in striving towards excellence in service delivery and operations.”
