BREAKFAST SESSION with Jean-François Tremblay, Deputy Minister of Indigenous Services Canada

Jean-François Tremblay, Deputy Minister of Indigenous Services Canada, will lead a thought-provoking discussion on how evaluation can contribute to meaningful improvements to the ways in which programs and services are delivered and their resulting impacts on people. The federal government, including Indigenous Services Canada, is currently undergoing significant transformation in the way it works with its partners to improve access to high quality services for Indigenous peoples. From its unique vantage point and through meaningful engagement and co-creation with Indigenous partners, evaluators can provide invaluable foresight and advice to leaders while organizations are in the midst of transforming. Mr. Tremblay will discuss his views and insight on the ways in which timely evaluation can add tremendous value to leaders during times of transformative change such as that currently being led by Indigenous Services Canada.
