We are pleased to announce that, as of today, CNIB has been accredited under Imagine Canada’s Standards Program. With this achievement, we join a distinguished community of more than 250 non-profit organizations dedicated to operational excellence.
The Standards Program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and non-profits designed to help organizations strengthen their operations in five fundamental areas: board governance; financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.
The goals of the program are to increase organizational excellence and transparency of charities and non-profits, to build resilience, and to strengthen public confidence in individual organizations and the sector as a whole. To earn the accreditation, organizations must meet a total of 73 standards. Earning this, especially during these challenging times, truly demonstrates our organization’s remarkable resilience, and our strong commitment to innovation and excellence.
As a newly accredited organization, we are deeply committed to setting new benchmarks and exceeding best practices, helping us to instill trust, transparency, and credibility across all areas of our organization. We hope this important designation will provide all members of our community with the greatest confidence when supporting CNIB.
