Evaluation Services


In addition to doing internal evaluations of its own projects, McCreary carries out independent evaluations for other non-profit agencies.

McCreary adopts a collaborative and flexible approach to evaluations, with the programs being evaluated ultimately deciding on the evaluation approach best suited to meet their needs and goals. All measures and tools are developed in consultation with the organization and other relevant stakeholders, including youth, and modifications are made based on their feedback.

Independent Evaluations


McCreary has been conducting independent evaluations for programs in a range of areas, including youth justice, homelessness, anti-discrimination, and mental health and substance use reduction.

Evaluation of McCreary Programs


Funded by the National Crime Prevention Centre (NCPC), McCreary’s Aboriginal Next Steps II project (ANS-II) offered Aboriginal youth ages 13 to 19 the opportunity to participate in a sustainable crime prevention and health promotion initiative. The expectation was that community involvement and participation in meaningful youth-led projects would reduce Aboriginal youths’ risk factors for engaging in high-risk behaviours and would support protective factors associated with healthy development.
