Evaluation of the Canada Travelling Exhibitions Indemnification Program, 2011-2012 to 2014-2015: CH7-36/2016E-PDF

"In 1999, Parliament passed the Canada Travelling Exhibitions Indemnification Act (the Act), and the Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH) established the Canada Travelling Exhibitions Indemnification Program (CTEIP). The program objectives are as follows: to increase access for Canadians to Canada’s and the world’s heritage through the exchange of artifacts and exhibitions in Canada; and to provide Canadian art galleries, museums, archives and libraries with a competitive advantage when competing for the loan of prestigious international exhibitions. The program supports Canada’s art galleries, museums, archives and libraries that organize travelling exhibitions eligible for indemnification which meet the selection criteria; as well as the Canadian public, who benefit from enjoying these exhibitions. CTEIP is part of the activities of the Heritage Group in PCH’s Citizenship, Heritage and Regions sector. Over the period evaluated, program expenditures totalled $1,522,954. The objective of the evaluation is to provide credible, neutral information on the program’s relevance and performance (effectiveness, efficiency and economy) for the period from 2011-2012 to 2014-2015. The evaluation addresses five core issues set out in Treasury Board Secretariat’s Directive on the Evaluation Function (2009). Several data-gathering methods were used: a review of program documents and data, a literature review, and interviews with key players. A trend analysis of the market value of cultural objects and the cost of commercial insurance for such objects has also been produced"--Executive summary, p. i.
