New Federal Policy on Evaluation

A new federal Policy on Results, which replaces the Policy on Evaluation, is now available on-line.

Importantly for those professionals interested in pursuing or maintaining the Credentialed Evaluator (CE) designation is a paragraph in the new Directive on Results (4.4.12) that states that “Heads of evaluation designated under subsection 4.3.12 of the policy are responsible for the following: […] ensuring that departmental evaluators have opportunities to develop their competencies and to earn evaluation-related designations or certifications from recognized professional associations and certifying bodies”.

As the CES-Nova Scotia Chapter has opportunities available for professional development this new policy should have a positive impact for us. We look forward to providing these opportunities for our members and professionals, and to the impact of this new policy for Nova Scotia.

We will also be reaching out to those of you listed on our consultant directory to ensure information is up to date, and the newly elected chapter executives for 2016-2017 will be planning over the summer for ways to develop our chapter as we move forward. The executives are always happy to hear from members, or those interested in evaluation in the province, so please do not hesitate to contact us with your ideas.
