Labour market expectations
The Government of Canada gives out $8 million per year to our labour-market programs. This means we are accountable to the federal government and Yukoners. Our funding decisions have to be evidence-based and subject to post-project evaluations.
To show accountability, we:
- regularly monitor and report on a project during its lifetime;
- evaluate our programs and the projects we fund;
- submit annual plans and reports to the Government of Canada; and
- contribute to and share labour market information.
Labour market program evaluations
Program evaluations help identify what is successful and could be improved. Evaluations show a program’s impact and value to Yukoners.
We engage an independent contractor to evaluate programs that we fund. We publish evaluation reports to:
- show fiscal accountability;
- provide a resource for stakeholders;
- share promising practices; and
- promote the practice of program evaluation.
