About the evaluation

The Department of Justice Canada’s programs are evaluated every five years to meet the accountability requirements of the Treasury Board’s Policy on Results, address requirements of senior management, and inform the renewal of programs and agreements.

The evaluation covers fiscal years 2012–13 to 2016–17, using information collected through six lines of inquiry to assess the relevance and performance of the Program.
