Strategic Outcomes and Program Alignment Architecture

The Strategic Outcomes and the Program Alignment Architecture (PAA) depict Statistics Canada's major programs and explain how these programs work together to achieve results for Canadians through Strategic Outcomes, Programs, and Sub-programs.

The Strategic Outcomes are the long-term and enduring benefits to Canadians that are linked to the mandate, vision and core functions of Statistics Canada.

The PAA is a structured inventory of all Statistics Canada's programs, where programs are arranged in a hierarchical manner to depict the logical relationship between each program and the Strategic Outcome to which it contributes. A program is a group of related resource inputs and activities that are managed to meet specific needs and achieve intended results, and that are treated as a budgetary unit.

The PAA is the initial document for the establishment of a Management, Resources and Results Structure. It is also used for reporting to Parliament through the Departmental Performance Report and the Report on Plans and Priorities.
