Evaluation of the Global Assistance for Irregular Migrants Program

Recommendation #1:

CIC, in consultation with DFATD, should clarify respective roles and responsibilities with respect to capacity-building activities related to the GAIM program.


CIC agrees with this recommendation.

Moving forward with the implementation of the GAIM program subsequent to receiving Treasury Board approval requires that CIC works in conjunction with DFATD’s Anti-Crime Capacity Building Program (ACCBP) in clarifying roles and responsibilities around capacity-building activities funded through the government’s strategy to combat human smuggling.


CIC, in consultation with the DFATD program authority, will develop a Terms of Reference to clearly define and document the capacity-building mandates of the two programs. The Terms of Reference development will:

  • Include a review of the previous GAIM contribution agreement and supporting documentation to identify capacity-building activities that may be duplicative and identify existing or potential synergies between the GAIM program and the ACCBP.
  • Describe the types of capacity- building efforts and activities underway or planned through both programs.

CIC will use this information in the negotiation and management of future contribution agreements with service providers under the GAIM program.
