ECN | Evaluation Capacity Network
Welcome to the

Evaluation Capacity Network

Dialogue about evaluation is needed to fully understand if we are making a difference in the lives of children across Alberta and beyond.


The Evaluation Capacity Network (ECN) aims to advance evaluation practices in the field of early childhood development (ECD).

Our main focus is to support evaluation capacity by providing opportunities for dialogue, co-learning, and the sharing of resources among:

  • Community organizations that deliver programming related to ECD
  • Funders that influence or require evaluation of programs 
  • Government agencies that impact ECD program funding, policy development & service delivery 
  • Academics that train future evaluators and support community agencies with evaluation services and resources 
  • Consultants who provide evaluation services.
