The Calgary Women’s Emergency Shelter is accredited under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program and the Canadian Accreditation Council for governance, accountability and transparency. With this achievement, our dedication to operations and service delivery excellence across the organization continues. 


The Canadian Accreditation Council (CAC) Standards Program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and non-profits with the goals to increase transparency, and to strengthen public confidence in individual organizations and the sector as a whole. Being accredited through CAC shows that our agency has viable structures, processes and practices to ensure stability and success, offering the best possible services to those impacted by family violence and abuse. 


Being accredited through Imagine Canada shows excellence and compliance in five key areas of operations: board governance, financial accountability and transparency, fundraising, staff management, and volunteer involvement.
