Back in 2015, the board of CCS voted unanimously to set CCS on the path of becoming a leader in no-profit governance, by pursuing the “Imagine Canada” corporate governance standards. This noble objective was built into our subsequent Strategic Plan.
After 3 long years of thorough standards improvement and implementation, our efforts have been rewarded. In April 2019, CCS was awarded Imagine Canada certification!
Imagine Canada works alongside charitable sector organizations, often in partnership with the private sector, governments and individuals in the community — to ensure that charities continue to play a pivotal role in building, enriching and defining our nation.
Accreditation is given to charities and nonprofits that have taken action through the rigorous Standards Program to bolster trust with the public by identifying and reducing organizational risk, improving board governance practices, being transparent and accountable with finances and fundraising, and fostering a strong workforce.
The Trustmark is a symbol of excellence and leadership in the charitable sector.
We now proudly join similarly accredited organisations like Oxfam, UNICEF, World Vision, YMCAs, United Way and hundreds of others across Canada.
