About Us

The Personal Support Worker Program Accreditation (PSWPA) accredits PSW training programs in Ontario.

The PSWPA is a non-profit corporation that works on a cost-recovery basis to ensure that accredited programs meet the provincial standards and vocational learning outcomes.

The Board of Directors provides governance oversight to the PSWPA, while the Accreditation Panel makes accreditation decisions.

Accreditation and the PSW Registry of Ontario

The PSW Registry of Ontario’s Education Requirements and Alternative Assessment Policy requires graduates of a Continuing Education School Board Program (CESBP) to have graduated from a program that was accredited at the time of graduation by PEPA or PSWPA.
