Individual Rights

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights; but only when the many shapes of personhood are recognized will justice and human rights be possible. CSCL’s vision is for a community that welcomes and includes everyone.

CARF-300x300CARF Accreditation

CARF Canada is an independent, non-profit organization that reviews and grants accreditation services nationally and internationally on request of an organization or program. Their standards are rigorous, so those services that meet them are among the best available.

In February 2021, CSCL welcomed CARF surveyors for our 6th accreditation survey. Achieving this CARF accreditation means that we satisfy each of the CARF Accreditation conditions, demonstrate substantial conformance to the standards, and use continuous quality improvement practices. All three surveyors stated this was one of the very best surveys they had ever completed, and were very complimentary about CSCL’s services. Surveyors were also very complimentary of our Board members and the level of knowledge and commitment to the organization.
