The logic model illustrates the connections between AHSUNC program activities, outputs and outcomes.

There are four categories of activities:

  1. Research and Knowledge Development
  2. National management and support to deliver AHSUNC
  3. Administrative support to AHSUNC program
  4. Intersectoral Collaboration and Capacity Building

There are four categories of project outputs:

  1. Principles and Guidelines; Policy and Procedures; Research agenda; Research publications; Tools and resources in Aboriginal early childhood development. These outputs are produced by activity number one above.
  2. Evaluations and evaluation tools; Database, TB reports, Horizontal policy documents; responding to public inquires; Workplan/budgets; Website; Newsletters; National Training Workshops; National Aboriginal Head Start Council meetings and liaison; National Working Group meetings and conference calls. These outputs are produced by activity number one and number two above.
  3. Project monitoring; Project renewal; New project funding, special needs initiatives. These outputs are produced by activity number three and number four above.
  4. Early Childhood Development Strategy; Develop shared goals and objectives with First Nations Head Start and First Nations and Inuit Child Care Initiative. Joint training workshop; Community and program exchanges; Joint research; Collaboration with Statistics Canada Aboriginal Children’s Survey, Health Canada’s Departmental Program Evaluation Division, Health Canada’s Community Action Plan for Children/Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program. These outputs are produced by activity number four above.

There are four immediate outcomes:

  1. Dissemination and uptake of research. This outcome is achieved by output number one, number two and number three above.
  2. Ongoing assessment of AHSUNC quality and relevance. This outcome is achieved by output number one, number two and number three above.
  3. AHSUNC funded projects successfully deliver services to Aboriginal children and their families with improved outreach activities to improve parent and family supports. This outcome is achieved by output number one, number two and number three above.
  4. Increase collaboration and joint initiatives with other Aboriginal early childhood development programs. This outcome is achieved by output number four above.

There are three intermediate outcomes:

  1. Increased cultural literacy, school readiness skills and school success in Aboriginal children, which contributes to the Promotion of Population Health logic model’s outcome of Knowledge Development. This intermediate outcome is achieved by immediate outcome number one and number three above.
  2. Enhanced capacity of Aboriginal children and their families to reach their potential, which contributes to the Promotion of Population Health logic model’s outcome of Capacity Building. This intermediate outcome is achieved by immediate outcome number one and number three above.
  3. Increased community capacity of AHSUNC projects that strengthen community supports for an integrated early childhood development system, which contributes to the Promotion of Population Health logic model’s outcome of Intersectoral Collaboration. This intermediate outcome is achieved by immediate outcome number three and number four above.

There is one final outcome:

  1. Contribute to the health and social development of Aboriginal children and their families in urban and Northern communities. This final outcome is achieved through all three intermediate outcomes above.
