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.

Description:

This 7-month project will examine the organizational norms and workplace conditions that encourage or discourage sexist behaviours or acts among men in the Canadian workplace. Building on Catalyst's previous research programming on Engaging Men in Gender Initiatives and the Men Advocating for Real Change (MARC) programs, which engages male leaders as role models and influencers for gender equality, findings from this research will contribute to identifying positive approaches and strategies to shift thinking and behaviours, go beyond silence and inaction, and drive positive change within Canadian workplaces.

Expected Results:

Women and stakeholders have access to supports to address issues relating to equality between women and men.
