This section presents the findings of the evaluation, organized by the three broad evaluation themes of relevance, design and delivery, and performance.
Finding: Given the increasing ethnocultural and religious diversity of the Canadian population and the continued existence of prejudice, racism and discrimination in Canadian society, there is a need for multiculturalism programming in Canada. To assess the need for multiculturalism programming by the GoC, it is useful to look at the concept of multiculturalism in a broader context. Canada, as an immigration-based country, has always been demographically multicultural; and there is substantial evidence that Canadians have a positive view of immigration and cultural diversity, and believe that both are an asset to Canada. The Multiculturalism Policy and the Act have been supported by a wide range of programming, including CIC’s Multiculturalism Program, that aim to address challenges related to diversity and to help all Canadians participate in society to their full potential.
In addition to sustained high levels of immigration, the source countries for this immigration have also changed substantially over recent years. Given this shift in source countries, the visible minority population of Canada is also increasing. With these changes in the ethnocultural make-up of Canada, there have been corresponding changes in the religious composition.
In addition to these general changes in the composition of the Canadian population, the geographic distribution of minority cultures is also changing, with more immigrants settling in provinces other than Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia, and more settling in non-urban parts of the country.
Thus, not only is Canada an increasingly diverse country, this diversity is likely having an impact on more Canadians and communities than it did in the past, which supports the need for continued multiculturalism programming. While Canada has adopted and supported an ideology and policy of multiculturalism, there is evidence that intolerance, prejudice and discrimination constitute barriers to achieving an equitable society.
In addition to these differential outcomes, both Canadians and minority sub-groups perceive racism and discrimination to be prevalent in Canada. In an overview of various surveys, PCH’s Public Opinion Research group reported on whether members of ethnic minority groups felt they had experienced discrimination in the preceding five years. In relation to religion, a 2009 Angus-Reid poll found that 72% of Canadians had a favourable opinion of Christianity, compared to 28% for Islam, 30% for Sikhism, and 41% for Hinduism. In summary, given that Canada’s population is increasingly diverse and that there continue to be risks associated with this diversity that may undermine social cohesion, there is a continued need for multiculturalism programming. A second consideration regarding the need for multiculturalism programming is related to whether the Multiculturalism Program, as currently structured, is the best way to meet that need. The first goal of social cohesion is clearly aligned with the need identified in the preceding sections. Bloemraad (2011) also discusses the arguments advanced by multicultural theorists, which suggest that by recognizing and accommodating minority cultures, members of those communities will feel increased attachment to, and engagement in, the larger polity. Many interviewees (21 of 34) felt that the objective of social cohesion is aligned with current needs, although many also commented on the fact that it is a very broad objective that could be operationalized in many different ways. The second objective of the Multiculturalism Program is to encourage and assist public institutions to be more responsive to the needs of a diverse society.
Just over two-thirds of those who provided their views on this objective (26 of 35) felt that it was aligned with a need, and that more work is required to help these institutions become truly responsive to our very diverse society. Finding: Multiculturalism programming, with its basis in federal legislation, is well aligned with federal roles and responsibilities, although provinces, municipalities and other organizations also have a role to play. Multiculturalism programming is a Federal responsibility by virtue of the commitments articulated in the Canadian Multiculturalism Act. In addition to these legislative obligations, the fact that immigration is primarily a federal role entails some level of responsibility for social cohesion issues that result from the diversity of Canadian society—a rationale that was raised by many interviewees (24 of 46). To better understand the extent to which multiculturalism should be viewed as a federal responsibility, the evaluation asked interviewees and survey respondents about the extent to which other governments or foundations are involved in multiculturalism programming and the potential impact if the CIC Multiculturalism Program did not exist. With respect to the typology, there do appear to be a wide variety of other potential funders, although not necessarily organizations that could replace the federal government. Interviewees also indicated that it typically takes a variety of funding sources to generate the full budget required for these projects. This lack of alternative funding programs was echoed by respondents to the telephone survey, as about half of both the funded and unfunded respondents reported that their project could not proceed without the Multiculturalism Program funding.
All interviewees who were asked (35) agreed that the federal government has an important role to play in the delivery of multiculturalism programming, but that there is also a role for provinces, municipalities and other organizations.
Similarly, all survey respondents (18) felt that the federal government has a role to play in the delivery of multiculturalism programming.
The Multiculturalism Program was initially part of PCH, but was transferred to CIC in October 2008, as part of a new Citizenship and Multiculturalism Branch.
Thus, it is reasonable to conclude that, at least structurally, the Multiculturalism Program is now aligned with CIC outcomes. There is no question that responsibility for the Multiculturalism Program substantially broadens CIC’s mandate (to include longer-term integration) and its clientele (to include all Canadians). There is some evidence to indicate that the GoC considers ethnocultural diversity to be an important federal responsibility. Finding: While the program objectives were modified slightly in 2010, the program activities and target groups remained largely the same as under the previous objectives. To assist in the development of strategies that facilitates full and active participation of ethnic, racial, cultural, and religious communities in Canadian society.
Build bridges to promote intercultural understanding, foster citizenship, civic memory and pride and respect for core democratic values grounded in our history, and promote equal opportunity for individuals of all origins. To increase public awareness, understanding and informed public dialogue about multiculturalism, racism, and cultural diversity in Canada.
To facilitate collective community initiatives and responses to ethnic, racial, cultural, and religious conflict and hate-motivated activity.
Assist federal and public institutions to become more responsive to diversity by integrating multiculturalism into their policy and program development and service delivery. To encourage and assist in the development of inclusive policies and practices within Federal Departments and Agencies so that they may meet their obligations under the Canadian Multiculturalism Act.
Promote Canadian approaches to diversity as a successful model while contributing to an international policy dialogue on issues related to multiculturalism.
There were no changes to the way in which the international engagement, institutional, or public education and promotion components were delivered under the old objectives. A new events stream was created to address the needs of community groups that organize events to encourage different communities to come together. The evaluation did not identify significant changes with respect to the types of activities undertaken in each of the program components.
Finding: Program responsibilities are shared among many sectors, branches, directorates and units, and there have been reorganizations of the program since its transfer from Canadian Heritage to CIC in October 2008.
The decentralization of the program and the subsequent reorganizations it has undergone have likely contributed to the somewhat mixed response from interviewees regarding the clarity of roles and responsibilities within the program. The evaluation found, however, that there are a lack of mechanisms in place to assist with on-going communication and coordination at the working level. Recently, a manager-level committee has been established, which includes representation from all branches involved in the Multiculturalism Program. The CFP process, which is used for most CIC Gs&Cs programming, is designed to solicit proposals at one time, with little or no involvement from Program Officers in the development of the proposals. Information obtained from a CFP proposal tracking sheet maintained by the Operations Performance Management Branch (OPMB) [Note 48] shows a high rate of compliance with the 30-day standard (almost 100%) and with the 7-day standard (over 90% for all Regions, except Quebec and Atlantic) (Table 3-3).
The consistency and transparency of the regional assessment process were improved by having these new processes in place. Information from the CFP tracking sheet showed that the number of proposals received far outweighed the program budget and the number of proposals that could ultimately be funded. Under the continuous intake process, Multiculturalism Program Officers actively sought out projects and worked with organizations to submit proposals for projects that they subsequently recommended to the Minister for approval. The project approval process [Note 51] was identified as an issue with the Multiculturalism Program by most CIC interviewees (24 of 27). It is worth noting that the problems related to transparency were somewhat different under the two approval processes for projects. With respect to events, the timeliness of approvals was raised as an issue by a few interviewees, who indicated that approval was often given at the last minute. Finding: An appropriate performance measurement strategy has not been put in place to collect data on an on-going basis and available performance data are largely at the output level. The Enhanced Follow-up of the Multiculturalism Management Review, prepared by the CIC Internal Audit and Accountability Branch (IAAB) in October, 2011, indicated that progress has been made towards collecting performance data for the Multiculturalism Program and stated that substantial progress has been made towards developing a performance measurement framework (PMF) and training for staff. Currently, the majority of information collected for the Multiculturalism Program is at the output level.
With regard to projects and events, however, the evaluation identified challenges with the collection of output-level information. The evaluators relied heavily on the project RAFs to obtain information and also contacted the regional offices to provide data and information, which calls into question the utility of a data system meant to organize this information and present it in a useable way to assist with program management and reporting.


The evaluation was designed to assess the achievement of both the immediate and intermediate outcomes for the Multiculturalism Program identified in the program logic model.
Finding: Public education initiatives have been widely promoted using a variety of methods and there has been interest in these initiatives. Information from the administrative review showed that over 100 events were held across Canada between 2008-09 and 2010-11 in support of AHM (36 events) and BHM (70 events). Information from the administrative review indicated that the promotional materials were effective in attracting interest in the various events and competitions.
Rollins College is a small liberal arts college of 1,900 undergraduate students located on the shores of Lake Virginia in Winter Park- just minutes from Orlando. Rollins College fields 23 Men and Women’s D-2 athletic teams in the Sunshine State Conference.
There are over 450 internships available in Central Florida alone and thousands more across the country and the world for Rollins students. More than 70% of Rollins students live on campus in one of 17 residence halls, which range from pod-style to doubles or apartment-style with kitchens and community bathrooms. Rollins has a recently remodeled million dollar, hi-tech classroom used for lectures and guest speakers located in the Science Center Building.

The Multiculturalism Program’s approach, which facilitates interaction among different communities in order to increase mutual awareness and understanding, has been found by a variety of academic research to be an effective means to promote social cohesion. To assess whether multiculturalism programming in general continues to be relevant, the evaluation first examined evidence on the level and nature of cultural diversity in Canada and the challenges this ethnocultural diversity may present.
However, over the last few decades, the size, nature and complexity of this diversity has changed substantially.
While the 1901 Census recorded about 25 different ethnic groups in Canada, there are currently over 200.
Between 1991 and 2001 Censuses, there were large increases among those who reported Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist denominations as their religion (increases over this ten-year period of 129%, 89%, 89% and 94% respectively). A number of studies have demonstrated that Aboriginal people, visible minorities and immigrants are particularly vulnerable to unemployment, underemployment, lower incomes and social segregation. A 2003 Ipsos-Reid poll found that more than half of those surveyed (53%) believe that discrimination against visible minorities in Canada is a problem. This conclusion was supported by interviewees, all of whom (46) believed that multiculturalism programming in Canada is necessary. In order to assess this, the evaluation included a review of academic research associated with the program objectives and underlying ideology. In addition, the way in which the program seeks to fulfill this objective, through facilitating inter-action among communities, and thereby increasing mutual awareness and understanding, is considered by numerous academics as key to the successful integration of minority groups within the dominant society. She juxtaposes this position to that of its critics, who contend that an emphasis on diversity reifies differences and undermines social cohesion. The remaining interviewees either felt that it was not aligned (6 of 34) or had mixed opinions (7 of 34). The literature review undertaken for this evaluation did not include research to directly assess the relevance of this objective. Four of the remaining interviewees, all of whom were CIC program and regional staff, did not think this objective was aligned; and the remainder (5 of 35), were uncertain, or had mixed views.
The federal role, according to interviewees, is to provide leadership, promotion and education in relation to multiculturalism, and to support the delivery of consistent and best practices across the country. It also aligns with a number of other key federal legislative requirements that define some of the fundamental values, norms and beliefs upheld by Canadian society. The typology of projects was also analyzed to determine the number and types of other organizations that fund multiculturalism projects. Each of the projects in the typology had an average of five funding sources (including the applicant organization), in addition to CIC’s Multiculturalism Program. They also indicated that, while there are numerous public and private programs and services that address multiculturalism issues, very few have the same focus or funding capability as CIC’s Multiculturalism Program. However, the way in which this addition will influence or be influenced by other programs and services has not yet been fully determined. It is unclear, as yet, how the department intends to reflect this fact in the delivery of short and longer-term integration services.
There are frequent references in CIC planning documents [Note 38] regarding the need to increase our focus on longer-term integration and on the challenges stemming from our diversity. Some notable changes were made with respect to the delivery of the grants and contributions component, including the implementation of a call for proposals process and the addition of an events stream. With respect to the Gs&Cs component, in addition to being re-branded as Inter-Action, there were three notable changes.
The CFP process also established consistent eligibility criteria, assessment guidelines, and service standards for processing applications across all regions. This has made effective program governance a challenge, particularly with respect to communication, coordination and shared decision-making. However, when asked about the effectiveness of the governance structure, many interviewees (16 of 29) said that governance was not effective, citing the decentralized nature of the program (10 of 16) and the many reorganizations as issues (4 of 16). Many CIC interviewees (15 of 24) felt that the roles and responsibilities of program staff were clear (note that this included all eight senior managers interviewed).
It intends to meet on a monthly basis to improve coordination and decision-making between groups, both of which were identified as issues by interviewees. However, due to the intentional broadness of the language in the CFP, the dollar value of applications received far outweighed the funds available for projects. Under the previous process, Multiculturalism Program Officers actively sought out potential projects and worked with organizations to develop project proposals. The CFP opened on June 27, 2010 and articulated the new program objectives, priority beneficiary groups, and particular multicultural themes that would be supported during the funding period. Atlantic Region cited resource issues as the reason the standard was not met in all cases, and the Quebec Region did not meet the standard because their letters were issued one day late due to postal hours.
Following completion of the screening of eligible projects, Multiculturalism Program Officers established a Group A list containing the top recommended projects that could be funded under the existing budget. This was similar to information from the telephone survey, as some funded and non-funded respondents indicated that multiculturalism issues are best identified by communities themselves, or at the regional level.
Under the new CFP process, Multiculturalism Program Officers completed assessments of the proposals that included scores and rankings, and then a group of recommended projects were given to the Minister for approval. These projects may be regional or national in scope, and can be initiated by an NGO or by CIC. Under the continuous intake process, transparency related to a lack of information with respect to how decisions were made. However, it was also noted that requests for event funding are sometimes received at the last minute as well.
When asked if sufficient performance information is available to assist with management of the program, only 3 of 16 CIC interviewees agreed that the available information was in fact sufficient.
All data collected for the public education and outreach, international, and institutional components are output-based.
The ultimate outcomes were not addressed due to the inherent challenges associated with measuring the impacts of social programs; and the difficulties with understanding what other factors may have influenced results . It was not possible to determine to what degree these initiatives contributed to the achievement of expected outcomes.
Usage statistics for the Multiculturalism Program website were available for all five public education and marketing campaigns for the years 2009-10 and 2010-11. Harold Alfond was a wealthy philanthropist from the state of Maine, who started the Dexter Shoe Company and later sold it to Berkshire Hathaway.
The Career Services Office will ensure that all students secure meaningful internships providing relevant experience during their time at Rollins.
Rollins has many smart classrooms equipped with video-conferencing and touch screen technology. The mentors for the program will be carefully chosen from the professional pool of talent available within ICCC’s membership to help the mentee in their professional networking and job search strategies. Feel free to bring your small children along (there will be a children’s activity area for you to enjoy with your child). Kids will learn about the Chinese zodiac through DIY masks, Kenyan food through paper dolls, and community figures through national holiday worksheets.
The evaluation then looked at the alignment of the current Multiculturalism Program with the identified need.
This growth boosted the proportion of visible minorities from 5% to 13% of the total Canadian population. Bloemraad reports that empirical research on these two positions has been limited and mixed. These interviewees felt that there was a lack of understanding about what this objective really means, and that the objective implied conformity rather than integration. However, a few of the explanations offered for these negative assessments were not related to the importance of this objective, but rather, reflected their belief that CIC does not really do much in this area, or that the objective is too large and CIC has no real authority to enforce change. Just under half (16 of 29) indicated that this objective was aligned with the need, although in most cases, it was because the Canadian approach can serve as a model for other countries, rather than the possibility of identifying better approaches for Canada. Most of these were other associations and NGOs, which were contributing relatively small amounts. More specifically, other governments often address multiculturalism through providing their services and information in multiple languages, not through funding projects intended to improve social cohesion. In some cases it was noted that other funding is often contingent on receiving core funding from CIC.
Four interviewees (of 18) also emphasized the importance of working in partnership with provinces, communities and ethnic organizations. This cross-walk and information provided by interviewees during the evaluation planning phase showed that there is a strong link between the two sets of objectives.


There is a lack of clarity with respect to the responsibilities of the various units involved in the Multiculturalism Program and some decisions have been undertaken without appropriate input from both the policy and program units. The public education and outreach component became the responsibility of PEM Unit (Communications Branch, Internal Services) in January 2009. The evaluation found evidence to indicate there are governance challenges related to communication, coordination, and decision-making. The remaining interviewees were either mixed in their opinion, or did not think that roles and responsibilities were clear, noting that there is poor communication between the various groups involved in the program. Regional staff, in particular, noted that they were not aware of what the various units at NHQ are responsible for, or from which units they were receiving various requests. In addition, the approval process was found to be lengthy and not sufficiently transparent. It is worth noting, however, that the Minister has chosen not to delegate decision-making with respect to Inter-Action projects, making this program distinct from CIC settlement and resettlement assistance programs. Ontario Region, in particular, received a very high dollar value of funding requests, at 16.5 times the estimated 3-year allocation for that region. A Group B list of projects was also established for funding should additional resources become available. When the CFP process was put in place, a Green Light process was initiated for the Multiculturalism Program. CIC interviewees indicated that program officers did not receive sufficient information or explanations with respect to how decisions were made, and that their requests for clarification had gone unanswered. While this was also an issue under the CFP process, the transparency issue was more related to confusion regarding the role of the Green Light process in approvals, and the fact that the process is not documented. The dates when Green Light reviews were requested and the response on the request were not included in the events list, so it was not possible to assess the extent of any problem. Data were not available for all activities for all years within the scope of the evaluation, although more complete data did exist for 2010-11.
With respect to the Gs&Cs component, projects and events have been funded based on the extent to which they would support program objectives.
For the purposes of reporting the achievement of expected outcomes, immediate and intermediate outcomes are discussed together. There has also been a consistent upgrade in the caliber of faculty and students since the 1990’s, when some people thought of Rollins as a party school.

Correspondingly, the percentage from Asia and Pacific, and from Africa and the Middle East have grown dramatically (from 9% to 46% for Asia, and from 3% to 25% for Africa). Police-reported hate crimes increased substantially between 2006 and 2009, although this may be due to increased reporting on the part of the police, rather than to an increase in actual incidents.
However, she does conclude that multiculturalism, as a government policy, can be shown to be linked quite strongly to immigrants’ civic and political integration, although there is less evidence to align multiculturalism policies with positive labour market outcomes. It is worth noting that all senior government managers and representatives of federal institutions who were interviewed believed that this objective was aligned with the need. In addition, the goal of assisting institutions to be responsive to ethnocultural diversity, both within their organizations and in relation to the clients they serve, is the only objective of the Multiculturalism Program that is actually mandated by the Canadian Multiculturalism Act.
The remaining interviewees felt that it was not aligned (9 of 29), or had mixed opinions (4 of 29). Some key federal government documents, such as Speeches from the Throne, refer to diversity, but do not identify multiculturalism programming as a policy priority. Conversely some (15 of 35) interviewees cautioned that housing the Multiculturalism Program within CIC risks aligning it too closely with immigrants, rather than with all Canadians, particularly given its relatively small budget. Although a few CIC respondents reported that roles and responsibilities have been documented, these documents were not provided for the evaluation, which suggests that roles and responsibilities of program staff have not been formally articulated. Consequently, they found it difficult to advise organizations as to why their projects were refused, or how they could improve future submissions. According to the Enhanced Follow-up of the Multiculturalism Management Review, the Green Light process was intended to accelerate the assessment and approval processes. It appears that more focus has been placed on collecting this information recently, which is consistent with what was reported in the Management Review Follow-Up. Therefore, any available information that may have been collected on an on-going basis is linked to objectives, rather than to outcomes. The MDC, NVC and PYA also each had an award ceremony for the winners of the competitions each year. Many classes at Rollins take place around a 20-seat oblong table encouraging a discussion-based experience. He also noted that social responsibility is something that both the college and the students value. Also, Lyman Hall is a dorm for the Outdoor Club, where students often are SCUBA diving or camping. The percentage of permanent residents from South and Central America also doubled over this fifty-year period, and represented 10% of the total immigrant population in 2010.
Multiculturalism Program Officers were the most likely to say that this objective was not aligned (5 of 6), which is not surprising as they have little involvement with these activities. It should also be noted that most of this funding from these other sources had not been confirmed at the time the project application was submitted to CIC. Some provinces, such as British Columbia, Ontario and Newfoundland, do have funding that could be used for multiculturalism programs, but it tends to be quite limited and, again, is primarily focussed on immigrants. A few interviewees (4 of 35) were firm in their belief that the Multiculturalism Program was better placed in PCH, as it was better aligned with that department’s mandate. The information from the project typology confirmed that there has been a subtle shift in what is being supported under the new objectives.
The Multiculturalism Program in the regions is the responsibility of the Operations Sector. A few Multiculturalism Program Officers interviewed also indicated that an additional peer review process took place to ensure a consistent approach. The Regions developed a list of recommended projects and the applicant organizations on this list were provided to the Minister.
Similarly, a few telephone survey respondents that applied for funding, under both the continuous intake and CFP processes, identified issues with the timeliness and transparency of the approval process. This information indicates that that these initiatives were widely promoted using a variety of methods. Students at Rollins bring a hunger for learning, intellectual restlessness, and a sponge-like capacity to absorb new information.
The gift was used to build the Alfond Inn in Winter Park (whose proceeds fund a scholarship), the Harold and Ted Alfond Sports Center, Boathouse, Baseball Stadium and Swimming Pool at Rollins, as well as create an endowed fund to establish the Alfond Scholars Program, which provides full tuition, room and board to ten well qualified students each year. This is generally attributed to the social capital afforded by these multiple social and cultural engagements. In contrast, a few program staff strongly emphasized the importance of this dialogue for refining our own thinking, and for promoting Canada’s approach as a model that supports social cohesion. For example, the concept of civic participation has been replaced with the concept of fostering civic pride and respect for core democratic values, and the concept of inter-cultural understanding is being emphasized between ethnic communities. With the introduction of the CFP process, CIC also introduced service standards for the processing of proposals. Following feedback on this list, the recommended projects were then submitted for a final decision.
Ted and Barbara Alfond also donated a $3.5 million contemporary art collection to the college. They are definitely committed to preparing students to become global citizens and leaders through applied learning experiences. Over the past five years, Rollins has invested over $20 million in renovations to improve the residence halls and Living Learning Communities such as the Honors, Accelerated Management Program, Arts, and Language to name a few  communities. Many have gone on to study at the top graduate schools in the country from Boston College to Vanderbilt University and everything in between from Cornell to Tufts. The third hypothesis examined by Berry is the contact hypothesis, which asserts that greater intercultural contact is associated with more positive intercultural attitudes and lower levels of prejudice. While questions on the CFP process were not specifically posed, when asked about issues impacting the program, some interviewees (9 of 32) suggested that the CFP process did not work well for a variety of reasons, primarily because of the volume of applications received.
For events, although approval is delegated to RDGs, a Green Light review by the Minister takes place before RDGs provide final approval for events. CIC program staff also reported that they are not using these evaluations in any way to monitor or assess progress.
They believe these types of resources and range of opportunities available to their students is what sets Rollins apart from other liberal arts schools.
Rollins Conference Course (RCC) was designed for freshman, sophomores and peer mentors as a way to expose students to career services in a collaborative and supportive environment.
Many students share that the keys to what makes a Rollins experience meaningful were the life experiences, lasting friendships, and personal growth they experienced while here. Berry goes on to identify a wide range of empirical studies that support all three hypotheses. Intersession is a unique concept where for one week prior to the start of the second semester, students can choose from a list of creative offerings such as Biracial Buddy-cop Movies, War and Conflict in Film, Art and the Brain, Courageous Leadership or Disney and the City as examples. Students cannot hide at Rollins, they will be included in discussion and challenged to think in a non-competitive atmosphere.
Rollins is at the forefront of the national movement connecting the relevance of a liberal arts education to the real world.
They also have a campus in India, Gendal Global University, where a cohort of 100 students recruited from India, Africa and Asia are studying for two years and then will transfer to Rollins.
They also have many students participate in Alternative Spring Break, which is a service minded trip. This represents just one way in which Rollins is paving the way with global engagement through new programs to broaden international exposure.
One of the favorite traditions on campus is Fox Day, a surprise day when classes are cancelled as a reward for their hard work. Study abroad is a strong part of who they are- 70% of students study abroad (all financial aid transfers when studying abroad) and 80% of faculty travel abroad every 3 years, which through the study of diverse cultures and views professors are able to better prepare students to face the challenges awaiting them in the world.
Fox day begins when the President moves the academic mascot, the fox statue, to Mills Lawn, the center field on campus. A Rollins faculty member has won the Florida Outstanding Educator Award for the past seven years.
