He has three decades of experience in performance planning and measurement, program evaluation, market research, review and audit projects as a management consultant and as an evaluation manager in a major Canadian federal government department. Mr. Montague has managed major projects analyzing a wide variety of programs for Canadian federal, provincial, United States and Australian governments, as well as conducting work for the European Union, the OECD, the Scottish Government and the World Bank. Steve is perhaps best known for his championing of “reach” as a key concept in evaluation – an insight which has been recognized internationally. He has three times been distinguished for his contribution to Canadian evaluation. While working in the Federal service in the mid 1980’s he received a Government of Canada merit award for his contribution to a technology centre evaluation study. Steve received the Karl Boudreault Award for Leadership in Evaluation in 2003 and he was made a fellow of the Canadian Evaluation Society in May 2011.
