About us:

The Canadian Healthcare Council is an organization that specializes in international certification of healthcare institutions and professionals. The Canadian Healthcare Council provides organizations with the information they need to pursue and maintain high standards of patient safety, based on World Health Organization and international standards and best practices. 

The Canadian Healthcare Council specializes in certification of doctors and healthcare providers outside of Canada. In Canada, it was ratified the UNESCO Convention on the Recognition of Studies, Diplomas and Degrees concerning Higher Education in the States belonging to the Europe Region. We provide information and referral services to individuals and organizations on the recognition of academic and occupational credentials for working and studying in Canada and abroad. The requirements for certification of professionals are up to current international and Canadian regulations.

Our governance and directors have over 20 years of experience in developing and implementing quality accreditation and certification programs in Canada and throughout the world, including more than 500 organizations in Canada and more than 100 organizations world-wide.


The unique programs of the Canadian Healthcare Council are our competitive advantage. All of our programs are designed, created, and reviewed by Canadian healthcare professionals and international consultants who currently work in the field and can effectively identify the needs of hospitals and clinics.

The Canadian Healthcare Council has streamlined the process of accreditation in order to eliminate archaic and repetitive requirements. 

Client organizations see returns on their investments because they pay the going rate for hospitals and clinics in Canada, rather than the price of competitors outside the country. For a large hospital, the rate for 3 evaluators is generally around CAN$14,000.

Another competitive advantage is our Canadian and international evaluators. All of our evaluators are active healthcare professionals who currently work at world-class health institutions.

Finally, the Canadian Healthcare Council supports clients by referring new patients to their organizations. Rather than simply adding your organization’s name to a website, we take proactive steps to get patients into your offices.





  • Competitors use more than 3,500 cumbersome standards for a hospital, many of which are repetitive and not evidence-based. There should exist a book of evidence to support their thousands of standards. However, the usual answer to evidence behind an unusual standard seems to always be the high number of clients using their program. Having thousands of clients is not evidence behind thousands of unusual standards. High number of clients is not a book of evidence but more related to revenue. If it is not written, it does not exist. In words of Canadian experts, the industry keeps singing the Fliddler on the roof song - a rich man - to not show the book of evidence and answer very serious questions about lack of it.  
  • The Canadian Healthcare Council has eliminated repetitive standards and prioritized evidence-based standards, which have the greatest impact on health care organizations. The standards required have evidence. The Canadian Healthcare Council understands that evidence has nothing to do with number of clients. The standards supported by CEHC do not reach thousands for a hospital because they are evidence based. 
  • Moreover, competitors state thousands of facilities are using their program as their competitive advantage. However, their public annual reports and information state less than 5% the number of clients claimed on their websites and marketing materials. Accreditation bodies could be inflating the number by  counting the laboratory of a hospital as one, the diagnostic imaging department as two, ambulatory services in the same hospital as three, emergency services in the same hospital as four, etc. When the main competitive advantage is number of clients but the numbers do not match their own public reports, it is time to look for other options. 
  • The unique programs of the Canadian Healthcare Council are our competitive advantage. All of our programs are created and reviewed by Canadian healthcare professionals who currently work in the field and can effectively identify the needs of hospitals and clinics. 
  • Competitors use inconsistent levels that lack coherent organization. Assigned levels lack meaning without a consistent plan for improvement behind them. When an organization is reorganizing itself constantly, this could affect the program. When a program is broken, it is time to look for other options.
  • The Canadian Healthcare Council has created four coherent stages of implementation designed to promote quality improvement.  Standards are consistent throughout each stage and have been developed by healthcare quality improvement experts.
  • Competitors do not provide a return on their clients’ investments. Competitors set prices according to the revenue needs of the accrediting body in their home country. Prices increase yearly, and large upfront payments are required. For full preparation and a final visit, competitors’ prices range from CAN $60,000 for a small ambulatory care office to CAN$500,000 for a complex hospital. When there is no return on the investment, it is time to look for other options. 
  • The Canadian HeaLthcare Council sets prices according to the standard rates for services provided to healthcare facilities and professionals in Canada. Rather than increasing in price yearly, contracts with the Canadian Healthcare Council maintain fixed payments for four years. Large upfront payments are not required, and fees are charged per service.  Large, complex hospitals may be evaluated by three surveyors for around CAN$14,000.
