Aboriginal Justice Strategy Evaluation
AJD Officials and P/T Representatives Interview Guide


Thank you for agreeing to participate in an interview for the mid-term evaluation of the Aboriginal Justice Strategy (AJS). The interview should take about one hour and a half.

As described in the email you received inviting you to participate in an interview, a mid-term evaluation of the current AJS mandate (2007-2012) is being undertaken by the Department of Justice Evaluation Division. R.A. Malatest and Associates have been retained to assist with conducting this evaluation. The purpose of the evaluation is to examine the design and delivery of the AJS, success/early impacts, adequacy of data for a future summative evaluation in 2011-2012 and to follow up on recommendations identified in an evaluation (2006) completed during the last mandate.

A main component of the evaluation is to conduct interviews with federal and provincial/territorial government representatives to discuss relevant issues.

I'd like to remind you that your participation in this interview is completely voluntary. Any information you provide will be used for evaluation purposes only, to provide an overall perspective. Every effort will be made to ensure that the information collected is accurately recorded and reported for the evaluation.

Do you have any questions before we begin?
