Manitoba northern and rural institute in evaluation

We are pleased to offer the fall 2022 Manitoba Northern and Rural Institute in Evaluation.

The Institute is a capacity-building opportunity for program evaluation and the use of evidence for decision-making. The Institute will bring together community-based practitioners and university students to learn about program evaluation using an online platform. Institute participants will learn about Western and Indigenous approaches to evaluation through a combination of lectures, case studies, and group work. Participants will develop evaluation plans to be implemented by community agencies in the health and social service sectors located in northern and rural areas of Manitoba. Contingent on space availability, those not from northern or rural areas of Manitoba will also be able to register. For participating agencies, the Institute will also offer the opportunity to receive support in implementing the evaluation plans after the Institute.  


The Institute will be offered from October 4 to November 15, 2022. Classes and group work will take place via an online platform on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 AM to 11:45 AM for the six-week duration. 


If you have any further questions, please contact Professor Javier Mignone ( and/or Susan Rabichuk (
