Our BHCOE Accreditation

Family Centred Practices Group (FCPG) has been accredited as a Behavioral Health Centre of Excellence (BHCOE) since 2017. During our latest reaccredited we were awarded with a 3-year accreditation, which is the highest level of accreditation possible. To achieve a 3-year accreditation an agency’s score must fall within the top scoring bracket, meaning we are exceeding industry standards. We continue to hold the honour of being Canada‚Äôs first BHCOE and achieving a 3-year accreditation demonstrates the high quality of service that we continue to provide to the children and families we are supporting. This marks another significant milestone for FCPG and autism services in British Columbia and Canada.


BHCOE Accreditation recognizes behavioral health providers that excel in the areas of clinical quality, staff qualifications and consumer satisfaction and promote systems that enhance these areas. These areas are measured with a wide-ranging audit, including interviews with agency clinical leadership, in-depth on-site observation, a detailed staff qualification review, an anonymous staff satisfaction survey, and an anonymous caregiver satisfaction survey.
BHCOE Accreditation is the only applied behavior analysis (ABA)-specific accreditation. It provides feedback regarding clinical best practices, staff satisfaction and turnover, and consumer protection. Acting as a third-party, the organization systematically measures and reports on existing quality criteria in the behavior analysis community using standardized methods and practices, and accredits only those service agencies that meet these standards. Collectively, BHCOE accredited organizations lead a growing movement of behavioural health providers that aim to increase the collective quality of services worldwide.


The entire team at Family Centred Practices Group is excited to have earned the 3-year BHCOE reaccreditation. We believe this accomplishment will showcase our commitment to evidence-based, quality services to our community.
