Evaluations provide valuable insights into the effectiveness of government programs and are used to help improve and renew programs and communicate program needs to senior decision-makers.

This event for program managers and program officials features a panel of evaluation and program leaders who will share and discuss practical tips on how to participate in and learn from program evaluations, as well as overcome common challenges along the way.

Participants will learn from the experiences of their peers about how to better navigate the evaluation process and use evidence to improve programs. 

This event is held in partnership with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat.
