Jacey Payne, MA, CE | Social Research and Demonstration Corporation (SRDC)
SRDC is a charitable, not-for-profit research and evaluation firm with a dual mission: to identify policies and programs that improve the well-being of all Canadians – with a special concern for the effects on those who are disadvantaged – and to raise the standards of evidence used in research and evaluation of these programs. In operation since 1991, SRDC has built a base of knowledge and experience across multiple policy areas, including health and wellbeing; K-12 and post-secondary education; skills development and training; employment and labour market; community capacity; youth development and inclusion; social finance; and housing and homelessness. We design, implement, and manage projects of many sizes and types – including feasibility studies, formative/process evaluations, summative/outcomes evaluations, economic evaluations (including return on investment), impact assessments, policy analyses, strategic program reviews, and performance measurement. Our evidence-based results help support decision-makers and other clients – including federal and provincial departments, municipalities, and other public and non-profit organizations – to improve their policies, programs, and practices.
