Text version: Figure 1: Logic model Global Assistance for Irregular Migrants (GAIM) Program

Appendix B illustrates the logic model for the Global Assistance for Irregular Migrants (GAIM) Program at Citizenship and Immigration Canada, which serves as a visual representation of the activities, outputs and intended outcomes of the Program.

Program activities

The program activities of the GAIM program relate to two groups of activities.

Activity 1: Provision of funding to deliver services for intercepted migrants: Migrant basic needs; identity, assessment and referral activities; return and reintegration services.

Activity 2: Provision of funding to promote capacity-building, foster collaboration and cooperation, and undertake outreach and awareness.

Program outputs

These two main program activities are expected to directly lead to one program output.

Output 1: Signed contribution agreements and funds.

Program outcomes

These program activities, and the subsequent program output, are expected to lead to a number of immediate and intermediate outcomes.

Program activity 1 and 2, and Output 1 lead to the following three immediate outcomes:

  1. Migrants’ basic needs are met and they are assisted to return to their countries of origin;
  2. Migrants are screened, registered, assessed and referred where necessary for refugee status determination; and
  3. Capacity-building, outreach, and awareness activities are undertaken.

Together, these three immediate outcomes lead to two intermediate outcomes:

  1. Migrants who are determined to not be refugees reintegrate in their countries of origin; and
  2. CIC contributes to the detection, disruption, and deterrence of human smuggling and illegal-migration activities.

Ultimate Outcomes

Together, these immediate and intermediate program outcomes lead to an ultimate outcome: Managed migration of people to Canada that facilitates the movement of genuine travellers, while denying entry to Canada at the earliest point possible to those who pose a safety or security risk, or are otherwise inadmissible under IRPA.
