This document constitutes the final evaluation report of the Canadian Space Agency's (CSA) Advanced Exploration Technology Development (AETD) program. The evaluation was conducted during the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 fiscal years by the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate (specifically, the CSA's Evaluation function) in response to the Treasury Board of Canada's (TB) Policy on Evaluation (2009a), which requires that all federal government programs be evaluated every five years. The evaluation covers the period from 2008-2009 to 2012-2013.
The mandate of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) is "to promote the peaceful use and development of space, to advance the knowledge of space through science and to ensure that space science and technology provide social and economic benefits for Canadians."Footnote 1 Established in March 1989, with a status equivalent to that of a Department of the Government of Canada, the CSA is responsible for the coordination and implementation of space policies and programs, the application and diffusion of space technology, and the promotion of commercial exploitation of space.
The CSA Audit and Evaluation Directorate commissioned the services of Science-Metrix to undertake an Evaluation of CSA's Space Astronomy Missions (SAM) and Planetary Missions (PM) programs as per the Five-Year Departmental Evaluation Plan and in accordance with the 2016 Treasury Board of Canada's Policy on Results.Footnote 2 The evaluation was conducted during the 2017–2018 fiscal year, under the direction of the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate (specifically, the CSA's Evaluation function) and covers the period from 1 April 2011 to 31 March 2016.
This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Space Capacity Development Program (hereafter referred to as the "SCDP") implemented by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). This is the first evaluation of this program, and it was carried out by the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate between September 2018 and March 2020, with the support of PRA Inc. This evaluation is included in the CSA's five-year Evaluation Plan and was conducted in accordance with the Treasury Board of Canada's Policy on Results (2016).
This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA)' Sun-Earth Science Business Line (SESS-BL). The SESS-BL's fundamental purpose is to support Canada's contribution to the advancement of the scientific knowledge concerning the Sun-Earth system, and the application of this scientific knowledge in a range of policy areas such as weather forecasting, environmental monitoring, climate change, natural disaster management and mitigation, and the protection of private and public infrastructures in space and on Earth. The evaluation covers a five-year period, from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2017, and examines the SESS-BL's relevance and performance. The evaluation was conducted by PRA Inc., on behalf of the CSA's Audit and Evaluation Directorate, between September 2017 and September 2018.
This report presents the findings of the Evaluation of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA)'s International Space Station (ISS) Assembly and Maintenance Operations Sub-Sub Program (SSP). The evaluation was conducted between December 2014 and February 2016, covering the time period from March 2008 to March 2015.
This report contains the findings of the Evaluation of the Qualifying and Testing Services Program of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA). The David Florida Laboratory (DFL), located in Ottawa, Ontario, is the main mechanism through which the program is delivered. This program carries out specialized activities and services for the assembly, integration and testing (AIT) of space hardware (e.g., satellites and components) on behalf of the CSA and external clients, both in Canada and internationally. The program exists to ensure that mission-assigned technology and entire systems can safely and reliably meet the rigours of space.
This report covers the findings of the evaluation of sub-program 1.2.3. Human Space Missions and Support and sub-sub-program 220.127.116.11. International Space Station Utilization (hereinafter called the "program"), implemented by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) for the period from April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2018. In 1985, the Canadian Space Station Program began when Prime Minister Brian Mulroney accepted the invitation by President of the United States Ronald Reagan to participate in the multilateral program to develop and build the International Space Station (ISS). The initial partners were the United States (leader), Canada, Europe (represented by the European Space Agency (ESA)) and Japan.
This report presents the findings of the Evaluation of the International Market Access Program (IMAP), comprising the European Space Agency (ESA) Contribution Program, administered by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
This report presents the findings of the evaluation of the Implementation of Gender-Based Analysis Plus
practices at Canadian Space Agency (CSA) since the CSA’s GBA+ Policy
took effect in 2017. This is the first thematic evaluation at the CSA and it was carried out by the CSA’s Audit and Evaluation
Directorate between January 2020 and March 2021. This evaluation is included in the CSA's five-year
Evaluation Plan and was conducted in accordance with the Treasury Board of Canada's Policy on Results
(2016). The concept of GBA Plus is not new to the federal government and has existed for decades through the
principles of gender equality.
The Near Earth Object Surveillance Satellite (NEOSSat) project began in February 2005 with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Department of National Defence (DND), establishing NEOSSat as a collaboration combining two projects: DND's space surveillance mission HEOSS (High Earth Orbit Space Surveillance) and the CSA's asteroid finding project NESS (Near Earth Space Surveillance). The two missions share the same passive optical sensor payload integrated into a multi-mission microsatellite bus. Each mission, however, is directed and managed by a different science team. Following a competitive process, the NEOSSat development contract, encompassing Phases B, C and D, was awarded to Dynacon in July 2007.
