Evaluation of the Labour Funding Program: Em8-33/1-2017E-PDF

International Trade and Labour stream and Occupational Health and Safety stream : interim report /

“This interim report presents findings from the evaluation of two streams of the Labour Funding Program (LFP): International Trade and Labour (ITL) and Occupational Health and Safety grants (OHS-G). The evaluation covers the period from April 2012 to March 2016 and focuses on the extent to which the projects funded through the program’s grants align with stakeholders’ needs, achieve project-specific outputs and immediate outcomes, and contribute to the program’s expected outcomes. Preliminary results from a review of ITL documents and project files demonstrate that the grants are producing most, if not all, of their expected outputs and are generally achieving their immediate outcomes. Final results are presented for OHS-G, based on a document and file review and key informant interviews. OHS-G projects are also generally producing their expected outputs and immediate outcomes. The Labour Funding Program is expected to contribute to safe, fair and productive workplaces and cooperative workplace relations in Canada and internationally. Specifically, the International Trade and Labour stream is expected to help Canada meet its commitments under international labour agreements and to assist Canada’s partner countries to meet internationally-recognized labour rights and principles. The Occupational Health and Safety-G stream is expected to help build knowledge and capacity to address occupational health and safety issues and to harmonize standards across Canada"--Executive summary, p. 1.
