use this website?
This website is designed to build your group's capacity to conduct community-based evaluations through a variety of tools & resources
The website uses a community-based approach to evaluation, where evaluations capture multiple stakeholder perspectives, including the voices of those who arrived as refugees
You can contribute to improving the evaluation of refugee programs in Canada, and ultimately strengthening supports for all refugee newcomers
is behind this?
The Centre for Community Based Research (CCBR) led the creation of this website in partnership with the Evaluation Capacity Network (ECN) at the University of Alberta
An advisory committee provided guidance and support throughout the website's development
Funding is provided by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) via the Service Delivery Improvements program
IRCC resettles refugee newcomers through designated streams (see logic model here); the tools & resources on this website further addresses the unique needs & desired outcomes of refugee newcomers once they land in Canada
