Evaluation of the Global Assistance for Irregular Migrants Program
September 2015

The evaluation of the Global Assistance for Irregular Migrants (GAIM) program was conducted in fulfillment of Section 42.1 of the Financial Administration Act, and a departmental commitment to complete an evaluation by March 31, 2015. While the program was launched at Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) in April 2013, the evaluation also covered earlier program phases dating from January 2012, prior to the program's creation at CIC, up to September 2014. The evaluation was undertaken in-house by CIC's Research and Evaluation Branch between June 2014 and February 2015.
