Mid-Term Evaluation of the Northern Ontario Development Program (NODP)

Industry Canada developed terms of reference for a mid-term evaluation of the Northern Ontario Development Program (NODP) of the Federal Economic Development Initiative in Northern Ontario (FedNor). The evaluation was managed by the Audit and Evaluation Branch, Industry Canada and conducted by TNS Canadian Facts. The evaluation covers three issues — program relevance; design and delivery; and lessons learned — with an emphasis on performance measurement and reporting. Evaluation methods include an extensive review of program documentation and past evaluations, a more limited literature review, a performance measurement system review, and nineteen key informant interviews. Evidence across these various sources were compared and contrasted by evaluation issue before an overall assessment was undertaken.

The following report presents the findings from the mid-term evaluation. This section provides a brief profile of the NODP, summarizes the findings of the mid-term evaluation, and presents recommendations for consideration by program management.
