Program Evaluations

Action Plan to Protect Human Health from Environmental Contaminants Horizontal evaluation led by Health Canada Planned June 2013


Statistics Canada always had a unique system of continually evaluating its statistical and corporate services programs. Prior to 2010, quadrennial program reviews identified accomplishments, challenges and future priorities along with users' satisfaction with services provided. Biennial program reports updated the quadrennial program reviews at mid-cycle.

In 2010, the Agency began working towards meeting the TBS Policy on Evaluation, and requested that programs complete a program performance report, including a program profile, logic model, update on past priorities, current priorities and strategic overview, and the top priorities for the coming three to five years. These components form the foundation of the TBS Performance Management Strategy: they ensure that the performance measures selected and developed produce useful and comprehensive information for monitoring and evaluating programs. The transition to full implementation of the Policy on Evaluation will be completed by April 2013; thus, the following table lists planned program performance reports up to 2012-13.
