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 project aims to support the long-term positive impact of increasing uniformed women’s meaningful participation in United Nations (UN) Peace Operations, through improved policies and programming at the local, national and global levels.

Expected Results:

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) enhanced decision-making by UN officials and members of state to address factors contributing to meaningful participation of uniformed women in UN Peace Operations; and (2) improved effectiveness of interventions by the UN, national governments, and civil society organizations to increase the meaningful participation of uniformed women in UN Peace Operations.

Agreement: Women’s Economic Empowerment for Inclusive and Sustainable Growth in Egypt (7407549 D004193001) (Jul. 19, 2019 - Jul. 31, 2024)
Description:

Women in Egypt face significant barriers to securing decent work, including limited access to financial and non-financial services, discriminatory social norms, and lack of access to social protection or support services. This project aims to support women’s economic empowerment in Egypt, where women's unemployment is more than three times that of men. It helps create jobs by improving the business enabling environment and promoting a culture of entrepreneurship for Egyptian women in high growth sectors such as agribusiness and energy. This project is implemented by UNWomen in partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).

Project activities include: (1) provide technical training and advisory services to women-led businesses; (2) support the establishment or innovative and green businesses; (3) support businesses to mainstream gender in supply chains, review policies and implement new ones that empower women; and (4) support women-owned enterprises to access alternative financing.

Expected Results:

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased productivity and job opportunities generated by women entrepreneurs; (2) increased employment of women by businesses; and (3) reduced gender-specific barriers to women’s entrepreneurship and women entering into and remaining in the workforce.

Agreement: Reducing Barriers for Uniformed Women in UN Peace Operations (7398884 P006631001) (Dec. 4, 2018 - Mar. 31, 2022)
Description:

This project aims to support decision-makers in UN Troop and Police Contributing Countries (TPCCs) with evidence and knowledge of the barriers limiting the deployment of uniformed women to United Nations (UN) Peace Operations. The participation and full involvement of women is important for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security, and yet, the proportion of uniformed women deploying on UN Peace Operations is very low. With a better understanding of why there are so few uniformed women, effective measures can be taken to reduce these gender imbalances. Project activities include: (1) collaborating with national or regional research partners from 8 selected TPCCs; (2) developing a comprehensive Barrier Assessment Methodology to undertake research of the barriers to women’s participation in UN Peace Operations resulting in detailed reports and policy recommendations to TPCCs; and (3) producing a series of Policy Briefs to inform policy development on women’s participation in UN Peace Operations at both country and multilateral levels.

Expected Results:

The expected outcomes for this project are improved policies and practices of Troop and Police Contributing Countries to reduce barriers to uniformed women’s deployment to UN Peace Operations.
