Indigenous Evaluation Network

The Indigenous Evaluation Network works to connect Indigenous evaluators across Canada and the world. The network will enable new, emerging, and experienced Indigenous evaluators and Indigenous program service providers to connect, network, build capacity, engage in mentorship, and expand the field of Indigenous evaluation by providing a central resource and hosting networking opportunities for the benefit of Indigenous communities. The network launched earlier this year with an opening ceremony.

Opening Ceremony

View our Indigenous opening ceremony by Grandma Pauline Shirt (may she rest in peace). The ceremony took place to celebrate the commencement of the 2024 Indigenous Evaluation Summit and the launch of the Indigenous Evaluation Network.

Network Early Registration

The Indigenous Evaluation Network accepts early bird registrations before the network is fully developed as a Charity. Our mission is to bring evaluators, Elders, and community members together to benefit the Indigenous communities. With our combined experience as a team, we know evaluation should include and consult Indigenous ways of life and knowledge when supporting Indigenous Peoples’ goals for programs and services. Non-Indigenous evaluators and programs are welcome to join the network.


Lunch & Learn Series

The Indigenous Evaluation Network (IEN) is pleased to announce the launch of its inaugural Lunch & Learn Series in 2024. This cumulative series is designed to provide participants with a valuable branded notebook. The IEN is offering three distinct types of lunch and learn sessions that cater to varying levels of experience and expertise.
