Our Values


We provide exceptional experiences to those we serve and go above and beyond through innovation of service. We do this by:

  • approaching care with the person and family at the centre;
  • delivering high-quality service;
  • being prompt and agile in addressing individual and family concerns;
  • committing to ongoing improvement in processes, services, and client
  • being adaptable to changing individual needs and circumstances, and
  • measuring and monitoring service quality.


We foster an organizational culture that accepts and nurtures the individuality of others and represents all people within our communities. We do this by:

  • fostering environments that are inclusive, comfortable, and welcoming for all;
  • striving to have the people who serve within our organization reflect the diversity of the communities we serve;
  • role modelling expectations and behaviours for all in embracing equity, diversity, and inclusion;
  • promoting fairness and justice by addressing systemic barriers, providing resources and support based on individual needs, and
  • embracing our opportunity and responsibility to move forward on the path of Reconciliation.

Healthy Relationships

  • showing respect to others;
  • communicating openly and sincerely;
  • showing compassion to others;
