Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation:


Formerly the Addiction Intervention Association, the Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation (CACCF) was formed in 1985. We are a voluntary non-profit organization, which has regional representation across all Canadian provinces and territories. The CACCF is also an active member of the International Certification & Reciprocity Consortium/Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (IC&RC/AODA).

Mission Statement:

The Canadian Addiction Counsellors Certification Federation strives to continuously offer the most effective and credible certifications to all addiction specific counsellors in Canada.

Key Messages:

The CACCF promotes, certifies and monitors the competency of addiction specific counsellors in Canada using current and effective practices, which are internationally recognized.

The CACCF certification and its professional conduct review process provide public protection for counsellors, employers, regulatory agencies, clients and their families.

The CACCF provides its counsellors with a quality, professional, credible and legal certification, offering personal pride and satisfaction.
