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.

Methods and Algorithms for Unsupervised Domain Adaptation

Number:

972620

Duration: from Aug 21, 2023 to Sep 30, 2022
Description:

Even in the era of big data, many domains may still suffer from lack of high quality labeled data for machine learning. Thus, zero-shot transfer learning is particularly important, which explores methodologies to transfer models learned from a supervision-rich domain to a domain with no properly labeled training data. In this project, we will focus on zero-shot transfer learning for sophisticated models and from a supervision-rich domain to a domain whose relationship is even unknown. We will tackle several data science challenges and develop principled methods. Particularly, we will investigate cross-domain data augmentation methods, which help to generate training or testing data for an unknown domain, or transfer data from a supervision-rich domain to an unknown domain. The techniques developed in this project may be used in many important problems, such as multi-lingual natural language processing (NLP) tasks and multi-modal learning.

Functionalized Boron-Nitride Nanotubes for Energy Applications

Number:

947412

Duration: from Mar 23, 2023 to Apr 30, 2022
Description:

Novel technologies are being developed to harvest energy from renewable sources, but enormous challenges remain. The intermittency of renewable energy sources, the disruption of vastly-deployed fossil fuel based infrastructures and value chains, the heavy reliance on rare and/or conflict elements, closing the loop on carbon, the drastic process intensification required for distributed power generation, and the need for alternative energy-dense carbon-free fuels for long-haul transportation, are only a few challenges in key sectors of the economy. Electric plasma sources and processes offer novel and scalable avenues for the transition, as they offer drastically greener paths to material and energy resource extraction, synthesis, conversion, recycling and utilization. Plasma-catalytic processes, which combine the unique processing conditions of the plasma with the accelerated chemical kinetics attributable to the catalyst, offer great promises to displace large-scale industrial processes, such as ammonia synthesis, nitrogen fixation and syngas production, and to introduce novel processes. The project will build upon NRC’s expertise to synthesize nanocatalyst supports, namely plasma-synthesized boron nitride nanotubes, and PPL’s expertise in plasma-catalysis, to synthesize novel BNNT-based catalysts and develop scalable plasma sources and processes, specifically aimed at ammonia synthesis and dry reforming of methane.
