This document was prepared by the Ethics Task Force of the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES), taking into consideration two rounds of comments from a Reference Group with expertise in evaluation ethics. Information gathered from two consultations, one at the 2018 Annual Learning Event of the National Capital Chapter and the other in the form of a roundtable at the Calgary CES 2018 Conference, also informed the document. This version has been approved for implementation by the CES National Board.

CES Guidance for Ethical Evaluation Practice

CES is working on revamping its stance on (and member support for) ethical practice in evaluation. We need your help to make sure this work is member-centred. Please consider taking part in our consultation by sharing a story from your own practice and/or signing up to take part in a survey. Learn more at https://www.andimplementation.ca/ethics. Stories will be collected until December 10th, 2021. Questions about the consultation can be directed to Jennica Nichols and Maya Lefkowich at [email protected].
