SIS was developed by LogicalOutcomes in partnership with OCASI, with funding from the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration. OCASI involved dozens of organizations serving immigrants and refugees in Ontario to define measures that were relevant to their services.
SIS has updated and revised most of the measures and evaluation tools, with OCASI’s continued involvement:
- The Statistics Canada reports of demographics, income and employment broken down by immigration status
- Measures adopted by OCASI in the indicator registry
- Evaluation planning tools – the planning workbook and the logic model builder
Addend is a data analytics consultancy that helps us design and visualize SIS data using Power BI. Its principal, Kamla Sharma, contributes pro bono time to SIS development as well as acting as one of our consultants.
