Professional Development

Looking for the Ripple Effect: Capturing the Outcomes and Impact of the Work of Settlement Service Providers

From 2020 to 2025, Eupraxia Training has been engaged by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada to design and deliver a modular professional development opportunity about outcomes-based evaluation for the settlement sector across Canada.

If you are an IRCC-funded Settlement Service Provider in British Columbia/Yukon, Prairie or Northern Territories, or the Atlantic Provinces, you can access the modules at the related website. Ontario SPOs will be invited to join in the fall of 2023.
