Services to children and families on the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation are being strengthened thanks to a recent accreditation process.
Peter Ballantyne Child and Family Services reports they have received accreditation through the internationally recognized Commission on Accredited Rehabilitation Facilities Canada which is an independent body that sets rigorous benchmark standards for quality in the human services field including child and youth services.
Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation Chief Peter Beatty says this accreditation means their agency conforms to nationally and internationally recognized service standards. He adds he is very proud that their agency has worked so hard to ensure that children and families in their communities receive the best service possible. Their Child and Family Services agency serves several communities including Amisk or Beaver Lake, Deschambault Lake, Pelican Narrows, Sandy Bay and the central office at the Chief Joseph Custer Reserve in the city of Prince Albert.
