On February 21–23, 2024 the Indigenous Evaluation Network will be hosting its first Indigenous Evaluation Summit in Toronto.
The summit will unite evaluators and program staff together to share their experiences with evaluation practices. It will host a plenary panel of projects that share their experiences applying the Awakening the Journey Vision visual and models, an Indigenous evaluation model informed by Indigenous Peoples. The summit will feature a ceremony and celebration for our communities and seek further guidance on the contributions evaluation can make to programs and community decision-making.

The Indigenous Evaluation Network is looking for private sector sponsors to help achieve the goals of the network and summit. In sponsoring the inaugural Indigenous Evaluation Summit, your organization benefits by:
- Informing your internal/external procurement policies,
- Implementing your reconciliation strategies, and
- Informing your understanding of Indigenous Peoples while supporting Indigenous evaluation methods.
The Indigenous Evaluation Summit is the first in-person gathering on Indigenous evaluation led by and for Indigenous Peoples. Truth and Reconciliation Canada Calls to Action is a national voice to support communities in mastering new skill sets that will benefit their community membership.
