Evaluation of the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency's Productivity and Growth sub-program: AC5-41/2015E-PDF

final report /

“This report presents the findings, conclusions and recommendations of the evaluation of ACOA’s Productivity and Growth (P&G) sub-program. The evaluation examines the relevance and performance of P&G programming from 2008-2009 to 2013-2014 as per the Agency’s approved evaluation plan and the evaluation’s terms of reference. It meets the accountability requirements outlined in the Treasury Board’s (TB) Policy on Evaluation. The P&G sub-program supports Atlantic Canadian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in accessing the information, business skills and financing they require to start and/or grow a business. P&G investments are made directly by helping businesses increase competitiveness through activities that support productivity improvements (e.g. the purchase of new technologies/equipment), start-ups/establishments, expansions, modernizations, domestic marketing, business skills development, training, and hiring of skilled personnel. Indirectly, contributions are made to non-profit organizations such as business and economic development associations that undertake activities that support business productivity, business establishment, entrepreneurship and growth as well as business skills development"--Executive summary, p. ii.
