Note: This updated plan reflects the following changes:

  • Three (3) postponements: 1) As a component in the broader Indian Government Support (IGS) suite of programs, Resource/Capacity Development for First Nations Governments, Associations and Organizations will be evaluated in 2014-2015 together with the IGS programs. 2) Due to significant program redesign, the evaluation for the Urban Aboriginal Strategy has been postponed to a later date and will be reflected in the next annual update to the Five‑year plan. 3) Due to significant program redesign in the delivery of services, the evaluation of Access to Capital has been postponed to a later date and will be reflected in the next annual update to the Five-year plan.
  • Two (2) cancellations: 1) The evaluation for Negotiation of Special Claims has been canceled because it is not a stand-alone program and, therefore, does not require an evaluation. 2) AANDC Northern Contaminated Sites programming was covered by the Environment Canada led Evaluation of the Federal Contaminated Sites Action Plan.
  • One (1) addition: An evaluation of the Common Experience Payment – Indian Residential Schools has been added to comply with the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding between AANDC and Service Canada to evaluate the component parts of the settlement – process/policy (AANDC) and service delivery (Service Canada).
