Summary of the Evaluation of Public Safety's Support to Avalanche Canada's Long-Term Sustainability and Expansion of Services

About the program

Avalanche Canada is a not-for-profit non-government organization dedicated to improving avalanche awareness and safety. The organization provides avalanche forecasts, develops and delivers training programs and supports research on avalanche safety. To support Avalanche Canada's long-term sustainability and expansion of services, the Government of Canada announced a one-time endowment of $25M in the 2018 Fall Economic Statement. The grant is managed and administrated by the Avalanche Canada Foundation for the benefit of Avalanche Canada.

What we examined

The purpose of the evaluation was to determine the extent to which Public Safety's provision of grant funding to Avalanche Canada has supported the organization's long-term stability and expansion of services and to assess the degree to which Avalanche Canada has achieved its expected immediate and intermediate outcomes. The evaluation covered the period from 2019-20 to 2023-24 and was conducted in accordance with the Treasury Board Policy on Results and the Directive on Results.
