Shared Health leads Manitoba’s development of a provincial model for accreditation in collaboration and consultation with health system stakeholders across all provincial health organizations. Our goal is to establish an accreditation model that supports a continuous cycle of quality improvement; creating a culture of client service and learning that is enhanced and sustained throughout the accreditation process.
What is Accreditation?
Accreditation is used by health care organizations to ensure they are providing the best care possible. It is an ongoing process in which organizations evaluate their services against national standards of excellence to identify what they do well and where they could do better, and make improvements based on the results. Accreditation is a valuable tool for improving both the quality and safety of care.
Accreditation Canada (AC) is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization that meets extensive third-party accreditation requirements from the Standards Council of Canada, the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQua) and the Asia Pacific Accreditation Cooperation (APAC). It provides health care organizations with an external peer review process to assess and improve the services provided to patients and clients.

In addition to Accreditation Canada, our health care system engages with other Regulatory Partners.
- Manitoba Personal Care Home Standards
- Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)
- College of American Pathologists (CAP)
- Manitoba Quality Assurance Program (College of Physicians & Surgeons of Manitoba) (MANQAP)
All WRHA/Shared Health sites have been accredited by Accreditation Canada.
The Shared Health Provincial Accreditation Team is the point of contact for the accrediting bodies and health system stakeholders, each Health Authority (HA) and every Service Delivery Organization (SDO).
