Our Principles & Values

We believe...


Means more than the avoidance of harm. Safety begins with a genuine belief in inclusiveness through which our emotional, physical and psychological needs are recognized and nurtured. Safety enables each of us to reside in a place of support that then allows us to move outside of our comfort zones and to learn and grow as we embrace the dignity of risk.


Requires the full acknowledgement of the unique abilities, talents and gifts, aspirations and goals of each person as a unique individual. Through a person-directed approach, we will work with individuals to explore meaningful and enriching experiences.


Is at the center of everything we undertake. In order to have a meaningful impact in all aspects of our work, it is necessary to maintain clear communication, to honour commitments, to have high expectations and to serve one another with the highest levels of mutual accountability.

Service Excellence

Speaks to the importance of achieving and maintaining the highest standards of performance in the delivery of person-directed services through evaluation and reflection within a culture of continuous learning and the development of innovative practices. Service excellence requires that attention is paid to both our processes and desired outcomes through self, team and agency-wide evaluation of our work through the lens of our Core Values, our Mission and our Vision statements.
