MSF Canada's Performance Strategic Plan, 2012-2016
In 2011, MSF Canada decided not to sign a further memorandum of understanding with the operational centre Amsterdam partners, and instead to focus its operational and resource support to the MSF movement as a whole. In their 2012-2016 strategic plan MSF Canada then adopted this movement focus as an overarching principle.
The strategic directions of the 2012-2016 strategic plan aim to: 1) develop leaders of tomorrow by focussing on progressive employment practices, recruiting people with potential, placing the right person in the right place at the right time, retaining the most talented, improving training and administrative support to field staff; 2) develop operational support capacity through a Programme Unit that involves multiple operational centres, 3) develop medical humanitarian thought leadership in Canada and within the movement, 4) expand MSF’s engagement with Canadians and 5) strengthen meaningful associative engagement to amplify MSF’s voice and advocacy across the country.
The objective of this evaluation was to measure MSF Canada’s progress in achieving its goals and to better understand how MSF Canada has performed in living and delivering added value to MSF’s social mission via its movement focus. The purpose is to meaningfully contribute to the development of the next strategic plan for 2017-2021.
