Evaluation of the Canadian Experience Class: Appendix B

Appendix B: Logic Model for the Canadian Experience Class

Described below

Appendix B illustrates the logic model for the Canadian Experience Class Program at Citizenship and Immigration Canada, which serves as a visual representation of the activities, outputs, and intended outcomes of the Program.

The logic model is divided into two major components, related to the following: program management and program delivery.

Program Activities

The two components of the Canadian Experience Class Program relate to two groups of activities.

Activity 1: The program management component of the logic model relates to the following program activities:

  1. Policy and program development, which includes:
    1. Conducting research and policy analysis;
    2. Developing processes and procedures; and
    3. Creating and updating manuals;
  2. Outreach and promotion to stakeholders in Canada and abroad; and
  3. Monitoring and taking corrective actions as needed.

Activity 2: The program delivery component of the logic model relates to the following program activities:

  1. Assessing eligibility and processing of Canadian Experience Class applications, which includes:
    1. Application intake and completeness checks;
    2. Communication with applicants;
    3. Initial assessments;
    4. Selection decisions; and
    5. Admissibility checks.

Program Outputs

These two main program activities are expected to directly lead to two sets of program outputs.

Output 1: The program management component of the logic model relates to the following program outputs:

  1. New regulations, new policies, new procedures and guidelines, manuals and guides, operational bulletins, media lines, quality assurance, web revisions, and training; and
  2. Promotional materials, program kits, websites, media lines, and quality assurance.

Output 2: The program delivery component of the logic model relates to the following program output:

  1. Decisions on applications, which includes:
    1. Applicants accepted or refused; or
    2. Refusal letters or permanent resident documents issued.

Program Outcomes

These program activities, and their subsequent program outputs, are expected to lead to a number of immediate and intermediate outcomes.

Program activity 1 and Output 1, under the program management component, lead to the following immediate outcomes:

  1. Stakeholders and prospective immigrants are informed about the Canadian Experience Class Program;
  2. Qualified International Graduates and skilled Temporary Foreign Workers apply for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class Program; and
  3. Program management effectively supports program delivery.

Program activity 2 and Output 2, under the program delivery component, lead to the following immediate outcomes:

  1. Processing is streamlined and timely; and
  2. Canada has an increased supply of skilled workers with Canadian education and/or work experience, and official language proficiency.

Together, these two immediate outcomes lead to two intermediate outcomes:

  1. Canadian Experience Class permanent residents remain in Canada and are economically established; and
  2. Canadian Experience Class permanent residents integrate into the labour market quickly and at a level commensurate with their skills.

Ultimate / Strategic Outcomes

Together, these immediate and intermediate program outcomes lead to the following ultimate program outcome:

  1. Migration of permanent and temporary residents that strengthens Canada’s economy.

This ultimate program outcome is the same as the overall Departmental strategic outcome for temporary and permanent economic immigration programming.
