In 2020 we celebrate a special milestone: We published our 10th National Standard of Canada.

Health Standards Organization (HSO) is the only Standard Development Organization in Canada solely dedicated to developing health and social service standards.

The designation of a standard as a National Standard of Canada indicates that it is recognized as the official Canadian standard in a particular subject area or topic by the Standards Council of Canada.

Our ten National Standards of Canada: 

HSO’s National Standards of Canada provide organizations with greater assurance that our standards are innovative, capture the voice of all Canadians, and provide world-class care to all.

We wish to thank our technical committee members, working group members and all those who contributed to the public review of these National Standards of Canada.

Your feedback and expertise continue to help shape the future of health services around the world and expand the reach of HSO’s People Powered Health movement.
