Peace Arch Hospital foundation becomes nationally accredited

Peace Arch Hospital & Community Health Foundation became one of the first hospital foundations in Canada to be accredited under Imagine Canada’s national standards program last month.

The program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and non-profit groups designed to strengthen practices in five fundamental areas: board governance, financial accountability and transparency, fundraising and staff management.

“We are thrilled to be recognized as one of the first hospital foundations in Canada to achieve accreditation,” foundation executive director Jackie Smith said in the announcement. “This accreditation reinforces to our donors and the community that we’re following best practices and demonstrating excellence in the five areas of compliance.”
