Communique Accreditation Policy Update June 2024 | MCFD

The Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) has updated its Third-Party Accreditation of Contracted Community Social Service Providers Policy in 2024. The policy requires that Service Providers receiving $500,000 or more in annual funding from MCFD and/or Community Living British Columbia be accredited. The update aims to strengthen MCFD’s Accreditation program and support MCFD-funded Service Providers by providing more clarity on roles and responsibilities, oversight and monitoring measures, and potential consequences of not achieving accreditation. The updated policy also addresses the complexity of MCFD’s contracts with Service Providers that operate across different geographical areas and for different accredited programs. Compliance with the accreditation policy will be specified in existing and future contracts.
