Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) Evaluation Work Plan

5 January 2023

The NIAA has moved to a dynamic version of the IAS Evaluation Work Plan to make it accessible to a broader audience, and to improve the timeliness of the information presented. Previous versions of the IAS Evaluation Work Plan (2017–18 through 2020–21) are still available.

In this dynamic version of the work plan, users can find information on past and current evaluations, and enabling activities, according to IAS Program areas in the tables below. New evaluations and enabling activities are added to the work plan as they come on line and updates to the status of evaluations are made as they progress through the different stages to completion.

NIAA’s evaluation and enabling activities are focussing on the early stages of the evaluation cycle – getting performance reporting and monitoring activities in place early to facilitate high quality, robust evaluations in the future to inform decision making.
