    8931_Needs Assessment and Impact Evaluation Toolkit: Building the Evaluation Capacity of Ontario CAPC/ CPNP Projects

    This capacity-building project was tailored to early childhood and prenatal programs in the Ontario Network of CAPC/CPNP Projects.

Elements of the toolkit were piloted at workshops with Ontario CAPC/CPNP project staff, providing feedback for the finished product with the added benefit of training staff.
