Habitat Canada earns prestigious accreditation from Imagine Canada’s Standards Program

Habitat Canada is proud to announce that we’ve been accredited under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program for excellence in nonprofit accountability, transparency and governance. With this achievement, we join a growing community of organizations dedicated to operational excellence.

The Standards Program is a Canada-wide set of shared standards for charities and nonprofits designed to increase public trust and confidence in the sector’s work by demonstrating excellence in five fundamental areas: board governance; financial accountability and transparency; fundraising; staff management; and volunteer involvement.

“This accreditation demonstrates Habitat for Humanity Canada’s commitment to serving families within an environment of transparency and accountability. We need to lead by example, and receiving the Imagine Canada Standards accreditation is proof in action of this. We are thrilled to be able to share this achievement with our supporters, donors, volunteers and local Habitat organizations.” – Mark Rodgers, President and CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada
