Standards on access to Health and Social Services in the Official Languages
Since 2017, the Health Standards Organization (HSO), in collaboration with Société Santé en français, has been developing standards on access to health and social services in Canada’s official languages. The objective: to improve access to health and social services for English-speaking communities in Quebec, and for French-language communities outside Quebec, along with the continuum of care.
The standards aims to:
• advice health and social services organizations on how to ensure quality and safety in their unique organizational and linguistic context
• identify quality health and social services organizations that deliver services to official language communities in their territories
• provide external evaluation bodies with measurable requirements to be included in evaluation programs
