Evaluation of the Building Communities Through Arts and Heritage for the period 2011-12 to 2014-2015: CH7-10/2016E-PDF

"The Building Communities through Arts and Heritage (BCAH) program, managed and delivered by Community Engagement Directorate within the Citizen Participation Branch of the Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH), was launched as a new program in 2007 in response to the federal budget which expressed the intent to support local arts and heritage festivals and small capital projects that place an emphasis on local engagement. In August 2009, the Legacy Fund component was added to support larger capital projects that involve the restoration, renovation or transformation of existing buildings and/or exterior spaces. BCAH provides grants and contributions (Gs&Cs) to non-profit community organizations, aboriginal governments or municipal governments to support them in planning and organizing events and projects that engage citizens in their communities through the performing and visual arts, as well as through the expression, celebration and preservation of local heritage. The evaluation of BCAH covers the period from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2015. The evaluation was conducted in 2015-2016 by the PCH Evaluation Services Directorate (ESD) with support from the Policy Research Group (PRG) for the literature review and the administration of the surveys"--Executive summary, p. i.
