Policy and Program Development and Evaluation
DPRA has evaluated policies and programs in employment and training, settlement services, public health, consultation, aboriginal community planning, legal services, emergency response planning, education, and environmental assessment for public, private and non-government clients in Canada, the United States and internationally.
DPRA's success in program evaluation is supported by experience with Aboriginal organizations, alternative service delivery, strategic planning, environment impact assessment, and social services. Our firm has a history of systematic evaluation planning and design, thorough research and analysis, and the generation of strong reports with meaningful recommendations. DPRA works closely with clients to ensure that the right questions are asked, appropriate methods are used, and that processes are based on an understanding of our client's needs and the issues involved.
