The Canadian Evaluation Society Ontario Chapter (CES-ON) is committed to offering professional development opportunities in support of our mission, which is that:

CES-Ontario supports evaluation and its practitioners in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in Ontario through professional development, standards, member support, education and the promotion of evaluation.

Professional development workshops are offered throughout the year to engage Evaluators and CES-Ontario members across Ontario, and to achieve this standard of excellence in evaluation. CES Members receive a 25% discount on all professional development opportunities.

All training opportunities are delivered online through the Zoom platform.
