Measurement of expected result for CONSULTATION activities
- The close partnership that evolved between the OLMC groups and Cupids 400 surpassed all expectations regarding
official-languages requirements. The resulting partnership model can be emulated in future undertakings with OLMCs.
- PCH is taking into consideration all written submissions and the results of roundtable discussions in its review of the foreign investment policy.
- The results of the impact survey to determine the impact of the transition to digital television on OLMCs will enable PCH to create a public awareness strategy.
- The progress report on CDF results presented to community partners highlighted the following points:
- Projects funded in 2009‑10 and 2010‑11 in every province and territory except for Nunavut. Just over 40 projects in the Atlantic, nearly 20 in Quebec, nearly 30 in the West and the Territories, and just over 20 in Ontario.
- In terms of arts disciplines, the number of projects receiving funding was essentially the same in the theatre and spoken word, music and song, and heritage sectors. Eight initiatives were for the publishing and literature sector and eight others were for the visual arts and crafts sectors, while two were for the dance sector. A larger number (nearly 40%) of projects were multidisciplinary in that they combined two or more arts disciplines.
- Nearly 23% of initiatives were intended for adults in OLMCs, 60% were intended for adults as well as young people under 21, and just over 10% were more directly aimed at youth.
- Of the projects, 29% reached rural areas, 26% focused more on urban areas, and the other projects were intended for both areas.
- The meeting of national coordinators (section 41) promoted closer ties between federal institutions and OLMCs from the territories. Federal institutions gained a better understanding of the issues in these communities. The follow‑up table shows the commitment of federal institutions and the progress made since the 2006 meeting.
- Discussions held during one‑day dialogue sessions led to better understanding of the respective needs, issues and challenges of OLMCs and federal partners responsible for the implementation of Roadmap initiatives.
