Evaluation of the Canada Business Network

The purpose of this evaluation was to satisfy a commitment made at the time of the 2009 renewal. The evaluation addressed the core issues of relevance and performance in accordance with the Treasury Board Policy on Evaluation as well as issues identified by the Canadian Business Network (CBN) program management. The evaluation focused on the five‑year period from 2008 to 2013. An Evaluation Advisory Committee with representation from all Managing Partners was established to guide the evaluation process. The methodology included a document review, a literature review, an environmental scan, a review of program data in the client database, 72 interviews with program stakeholders, 15 focus groups with 109 CBN clients across Canada, online end‑user testing for the CBN web site, process mapping and financial data analysis.
