Since 2001 we have managed nine longitudinal evaluations, each about 3-years long and inclusive of 150 – 300 program participants. We keep you in-the-loop with a start-up call, check-in on data collection process, review of early findings, and discussion on vital messaging, to talking about implementing the final report recommendations. We include action plans with budget estimates and potential funding sources as a means for addressing recommendations.
Our policy research and program evaluation services have met the needs of First Nations, government departments, and independent programs and organizations. We prefer mixed method approaches that include triangulated methodologies utilizing culture-appropriate and grounded tools. One example is our Waawiyeyaa Evaluation Tool, which has been rigorously tested. Since 2010, this tool has been applied in evaluation, research, and program delivery settings, and our database has received over 500 entries by Indigenous program participants. We provide core competencies for our clients in program evaluation, program policy research, strategic planning, Indigenous governance training, and economic development research.
