The Canadian Evaluation Society (CES), as the professional order for Evaluation in Canada, has contributed to the professionalization of evaluation through the CES Credentialed Evaluator (CE) designation program. The CE designation program is meant to define, recognize and, promote the practice of ethical, high quality and competent evaluation in Canada through a program for professional designations. The CE designation program is a voluntary certification service provided by CES to its members.

WHY BECOME A CREDENTIALED EVALUATOR (CE)?

The Credentialed Evaluator designation means that the holder has provided evidence of the education and experience required by the CES to be a competent evaluator. The Credentialed Evaluator designation program is a voluntary certification service provided to Canadian Evaluation Society members.
The Credentialed Evaluator designation program promotes continuous learning within our evaluation community. In this context, this program recognizes those that have attained the education and experience required to provide evaluation services, and calls upon evaluators to maintain and renew these skills on an ongoing basis.

Full details are available, and all applications are processed through the CES National website.
In 2020/21, our chapter is piloting a mentoring program to support members who are in the process of obtaining their CE designation. The board will evaluate this pilot in early 2021 and determine whether it will be expanded. For more information, contact: [email protected]
