Earlier this year, Health in Common became accredited through the Imagine Canada Standards Program. Accreditation is awarded to charities and non-profits that help to build excellence through common standards of practice and to strengthen confidence in the sector. We are excited to be recognized through this process and proud to be among the 17 new organizations to join the program!
