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.

Description:

P006503001 & P006503002: The project aims to reduce inequalities between men and women, particularly those facing multiple forms of discrimination, in Ukraine.

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.

Agreement: Strengthening Zambia’s Police Service for United Nations Peace Operations (7410184 P007714001) (Aug. 15, 2019 - Dec. 31, 2019)
Description:

This project aims to support Zambia’s efforts in establishing a Formed Police Unit (FPU) to further strengthen the country’s contributions to United Nations (UN) Peace Operations, and increase the security of communities that are served by them. The majority of police officers serving in UN Peace Operations are deployed as part of an FPU, trained and equipped to act as a cohesive unit capable of accomplishing policing tasks that individual police officers cannot address. In order to successfully establish a deployable FPU in Zambia, there is a need to increase knowledge and awareness among decision-makers in Zambian government institutions on the necessary requirements, as well as explore strategies to strengthen the number of women police officers successfully integrated.
