Search Grants and Contributions

About this information

In June 2016, as part of the Open Government Action Plan, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) committed to increasing the transparency and usefulness of grants and contribution data and subsequently launched the Guidelines on the Reporting of Grants and Contributions Awards, effective April 1, 2018.

The rules and principles governing government grants and contributions are outlined in the Treasury Board Policy on Transfer Payments. Transfer payments are transfers of money, goods, services or assets made from an appropriation to individuals, organizations or other levels of government, without the federal government directly receiving goods or services in return, but which may require the recipient to provide a report or other information subsequent to receiving payment. These expenditures are reported in the Public Accounts of Canada. The major types of transfer payments are grants, contributions and 'other transfer payments'.

Included in this category, but not to be reported under proactive disclosure of awards, are (1) transfers to other levels of government such as Equalization payments as well as Canada Health and Social Transfer payments. (2) Grants and contributions reallocated or otherwise redistributed by the recipient to third parties; and (3) information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act.

Agreement: Seasonal prediction of ice conditions in the St-Lawrence Seaway using ArtificialIntelligence (978108) (Sep. 1, 2021 - Aug. 31, 2024)
Description:

Knowledge of ice conditions from freeze-up to break-up is critical for hydrological forecasting and monitoring, as well as for safe operation of ships in icy waters. However, forecasts of ice conditions are almost nonexistent for the St-Lawrence Seaway, a major shipping channel in Canada. This project will develop a forecast model for the (sub-) seasonal evolution of ice conditions in the St-Lawrence River based on Machine Learning. The purpose of these predictions is to aid stakeholders in decision-making and risk analysis for their activities. Ideally, the forecasts will have a lead-time of 30 to 60 days and will be updated daily. First, the model will focus on forecasting ice conditions in the St-Lawrence Seaway, since there is currently a lack of ice forecasts in this region. The model will then be extended to the Estuary/Gulf of the St-Lawrence River if the forecasts for the Seaway are shown to be skillful.
