8 CSP Renewal Process Desire for an orderly transition from the current Canadian Sport Policy to its successor post-2012 Deputy Ministers directed officials to plan for renewal Stages of renewal process (2010) CSP evaluation (report in Spring 2010) Focused consultations in each F-P/T jurisdiction Renewal workshop (October 2010)
9 CSP Renewal Process Core Questions for 2010 Consultations 1.Are the conclusions and recommendations contained in the Final Report of the Canadian Sport Policy Summative Evaluation valid? 2.With regard to the implementation of the current Canadian Sport Policy: What has been done? What remains to be done? What should be done next? 3.Is there a desire for a pan-Canadian sport policy post-2012? And, if so: 4.What can be learned from the development and implementation of the current Canadian Sport Policy that would result in a successor policy having a greater impact?
10 CSP Renewal Process Core Questions for 2010 Consultations 5.Would the four goals of the existing CSP be appropriate for a new policy? 6.Is there a desire for an additional goal to capture and further explore non-sport-specific sector initiatives related, for example, to health, education, social cohesion, etc.? 7.Based on the above, what should the broad consultations envisioned for March-June 2011 look like? Who should be involved?
11 CSP Evaluation Based on Evaluation Framework approved by F-P/T Deputy Ministers Conducted from June 2009 to April 2010 Document review, database review, P/T survey and F-P/T key informant interviews, public opinion research, discussion groups, on-line survey of NSOs/MSOs and P/TSOs, expert panel
12 CSP Evaluation Conclusions The overall impact has been positive Unexpected positive impacts Policy remains relevant Canadian Sport Policy has been largely a success Policy appears to have lost profile No question that a Sport Policy is needed in Canada – whether it is the same Policy with minor tweaks or a new Policy with a different focus will depend on results of consultation.
