Nota Bene

Nota Bene is Latin for “note well”, from the verb notare which means, “to note”. What better imperative could there be for a team of evaluation and research professionals – “pay attention”!


POLICY & PRACTICE RESEARCH

Our team has decades of experience conducting policy and practice research in the areas of: Aboriginal child welfare; substance use and pregnancy; FASD, child welfare best practices, and early childhood development, integrated case management, Aboriginal health and social services delivery, and issues related to gerontology/aging.

PROGRAM EVALUATION

We have extensive experience developing evaluation frameworks and conducting process/formative, outcome/summative, impact, developmental and participatory evaluations. We also have experience conducting cost analysis as part of evaluations.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Our strong participatory approach and respectful acknowledgement of traditions, protocols, and community standards help facilitate linkages with individuals who work in these communities/settings and enables the team to develop a sensitive approach to the unique issues faced by each community or group.

We acknowledge with respect that we are visitors on the traditional, unceded lands of the Lekwungen peoples, the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations and the Qualicum First Nation, and we thank the Lekwungen people for allowing us to live, work and learn on their lands.
