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.

Agreement: (984562). Apr 1, 2022 - May 31, 2025
Description:

Vertical takeoff and Landing (VTOL) vehicles provide highly practical means of delivering critical goods to remote locations in Canada. Recent advances in navigation sensors, satellite communication data links and AI-powered navigation payloads are paving the path towards safe and robust beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) VTOL drone delivery. Current drone delivery systems exclusively rely on GPS waypoint navigation autonomy functions to support BVLOS operation with remote pilot supervision, but mainstream operational adaptation of these systems requires additional safety critical measures to guarantee navigational accuracy regulatory requirements, protection measures against injury to persons caused by system failures and warning and alerts to enhance the risk awareness of the system.
To this end, this project will develop Al-based multi-sensor navigation technology that adapts to the changes in sensor information, facilitates autonomous real-time trajectory planning, and provides pilot assistance for vehicles engaged in BVLOS operations in remote Canadian environments.

Agreement: (988483). Mar 15, 2022 - Mar 14, 2024
Description:

This project directly addresses the use of AI to assist with the design of photonic components, both for “classical” devices where improvements in performance or size will be sought, as well as design of new devices such as optical phased arrays, which rely on grating couplers as fundamental blocks. Artificial Intelligence will be used to develop efficient and accurate surrogate models for subwavelength grating structures.
