The Law Foundation of Ontario Connecting Region: Final Evaluation Report
As part of our commitment to understanding the impact of our grantmaking, we commissioned an evaluation of our Connecting Region program (an initiative of our larger Connecting Project). The evaluation focused on the effectiveness of the Connecting Ottawa project and seed funding that was granted to three consortiums to develop a regional model.
