About the Departmental Results Report
The Departmental Results Report provides key information on what Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) accomplished in the previous fiscal year (April 1 2017 to March 30, 2018) and how the Department contributed to the Government’s agenda.
Fundamental to democracy and good corporate practices are the goals of continuously improving Parliamentarians’ and Canadians’ understanding of the results that the Government seeks to achieve, the actual results that government programs do achieve, and the resources used to do so. To advance these goals, a new Treasury Board Policy on Results came into effect on July 1, 2016, with a requirement for the development and approval of a new Departmental Results Framework and Program Inventory by November 1, 2017. This new structure was used in the 2018–19 Departmental Plan tabled in April 2018, and therefore this is the last Departmental Results Report using the Program Alignment Architecture.
- In the “Organizational Priorities” section, short descriptions of the key initiatives pursued in fiscal year 2017–18 are listed under the Strategic Directions and Priorities that they support. More details on these initiatives can be found in the section of the document identified in the right-hand column.
- The section “Raison d’être, Mandate and Role” provides details on the number of clients we served and our key service achievements in fiscal year 2017–18.
- The trends and factors affecting the Department’s work and ability to deliver on commitments are discussed in the “Operating Context and Key Risks” section.
- Throughout the sections on “Results” you will find highlight boxes that provide information on cross-cutting initiatives affecting a range of different programs, and innovative and experimental projects that support our commitment to better support and serve Canadians.
