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: Empowering Youth Through Rights-Based Comprehensive Sexuality Education (7403233 P006428001) (Mar. 6, 2019 - Sep. 30, 2022)

The project partner, International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), is a federation of Member Associations (MAs). The IPPF has identified 3 MAs to become Centres of Excellence over the course of the project.

The project supports the establishment of these three Centres of Excellence in Bolivia, Kenya and Togo for gender-integrated and rights-based youth-centred sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) programs for the Latin American, Anglophone and Francophone African regions.

The project enables the three International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) Member Associations to: 1) improve access to comprehensive sexuality education programs and SRH services that are gender-integrated, rights-based and youth centred; 2) improve the quality of CSE programs so that they are rights-based and gender equality-focused including information on how to address harmful gender norms, providing tools for girls and young women to be empowered in their relationships; and reducing incidence of early marriage and pregnancy; and 3) develop the capacity of the IPPF Member Associations to support regional programming that is rights-based and youth-centred, as part of their capacity as a Center of Excellence.
