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. We are expected to launch the network in early to mid-2024 with a naming ceremony for the network.

Network Pre-Registration

The Indigenous Evaluation Network is accepting pre-registrations before the launch of the network in early to mid-2024. 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.
