Each year, the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services conducts compliance inspections of all Ministry-funded service agencies.
The primary purpose of an inspection is to assess service agency compliance with legislation and policy directives. Compliance inspections are intended to provide assurances to the Ministry, members of the public, stakeholders and individuals receiving services and supports that adults with developmental disabilities are receiving quality standards of care, in a safe and secure environment. Inspections are designed to be both transparent and fair. The specific standards of care and safety requirements are set out in 279 indicators. This year, EDCL achieved 278 of these indicators or 99.6%. This is an incredible achievement. Our appreciation goes out to all the staff and management for their hard work, attention to detail and continued quality of service provided to all people supported by EDCL.
