How Do We Know What’s Working?
Measuring Settlement Outcomes for Individuals and Communities

Organized by:
Pathways to Prosperity in partnership with
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada

Monday, June 24, 2019 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Shaw Centre, Ottawa, Canada

Pathways to Prosperity Partnership is pleased to invite you to the P2P-IRCC preconference on “How Do We Know What’s Working? Measuring Settlement Outcomes for Individuals and Communities”.

Through presentations and table discussions, this hands-on, full-day event will explore new strategies for measuring immigrants’ economic, social and civic-cultural outcomes at both the service delivery and community levels. The focus will be on strategies for determining what works and what doesn’t, as well as new ways of measuring processes and change, attributing outcomes, and assessing community impact. Outcome measurement is not only a tool for ensuring accountability. It provides a basis for identifying promising practices that can be further developed and shared; allows us to identify practices that need improvement and suggests how to do so; and, at the community level, points to areas in need of particular attention.

This preconference will be of interest to representatives of all levels of government, the settlement sector, funders, researchers working in the area, and all stakeholders interested in having an evidence base to ensure the successful settlement and integration of newcomers.
