Through strategic reviews, the government systematically assesses the relevance and performance of every program every four years.

The strategic review process requires departments and agencies to review 100 per cent of their programs with a view to better focus programs and services, streamline internal operations and transform the way they do business and achieve better results for Canadians. In this way, federal organizations are better able to:

  • Increase efficiencies and effectiveness;
  • Focus on core roles; and
  • Meet the priorities of Canadians.

The process supports a responsible approach to managing taxpayers’ dollars based on results. The goal is to ensure that programs are effective and efficient and that they provide value for money.

Through this process, organizations identify opportunities for redirecting funding to other programs that meet the priorities of the government and of Canadians.
