Distinction recognizes our professionalism
RMHC Toronto is celebrating its reaccreditation under Imagine Canada’s prestigious national Standards Program
The reaccreditation, which comes five years after we were first accredited in 2014, demonstrates our organization continues to maintain excellence in accountability, transparency and trust. We are one of just over 240 charities in Canada to date to have achieved the distinction.
“It’s no small feat for an organization to earn Standards Program accreditation. It’s a rigorous, peer-reviewed process that is meant to build Canadians’ trust and confidence in the charitable sector,” says Bruce MacDonald, president and CEO of Imagine Canada. “The organizations accredited to date reflect a broad spectrum in size, scope and geography. Each one takes governance, accountability, and transparency very seriously. We’re proud to have them on board.”
To earn accreditation, charities must identify and reduce organizational risk, improve board governance practices, demonstrate transparency, financial accountability and fundraising, and foster a strong workforce.
“Accreditation is a symbol of our professionalism,” says Sally Ginter, RMHC Toronto CEO. “It’s important that donors know they can trust our organization.”
So when you see the Imagine Canada Trustmark (see above) on our materials, be confident that your donation dollars are being put to good use.
