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.

Climate Adaptation and Protected Areas

Agreement Number:

7448354 P011888001

Duration: from Mar 29, 2023 to Mar 31, 2026
Description:

This project promotes natural solutions to strengthen climate resilience and protect biodiversity. The project works with conservation partners, local communities, national and local authorities, and traditionally marginalized groups – particularly women. It seeks to integrate nature-based solutions into protected areas management and conservation interventions. The initiative aims to increase the resilience of ecosystems and people of all genders and social groups in selected countries to current and future climate changes. The project seeks to achieve this through three main areas of focus that include: (1) on the ground implementation of nature-based climate solutions interventions in protected areas to demonstrate their value as a means of improving community and ecosystem resilience; (2) integration of gender-responsive, conflict-sensitive and inclusive adaptation considerations, grounded in a human rights-based approach, into the management systems of protected areas; and (3) increased participation of women and marginalized groups in protected area management and decision-making. Achieving these would help meet national and global climate, land, biodiversity, and sustainable development commitments. Project activities include : (1) conducting, documenting, and disseminating research on the gender and biodiversity benefits of Nature-Based Solutions in each project site; (2) carrying out capacity- building workshops on Nature-Based Solutions design and implementation for protected areas managers, local authorities, and local civil society organizations; and (3) designing and implementing conflict-sensitive nature-based solutions for adaptation in selected protected areas.

Advancing National Adaptation Planning in Developing Countries

Agreement Number:

7416373 P006569001

Duration: from Feb 6, 2020 to Mar 31, 2024
Description:

This project is a part of a multi-donor, global initiative that aims to reduce vulnerability to climate change for women and men, by improving the quality and integration of gender equality into national adaptation planning and action (a process that facilitates the integration of climate change adaptation into relevant new and existing policies) in developing countries. Projects activities include: (1) providing long and short-term in-country technical assistance; (2) facilitating peer-learning events between government policy-makers; and (3) developing and disseminating knowledge development and policy analysis. The project also works to improve the capacity of government actors and other stakeholders, particularly in small island developing states and in Sub-Saharan Africa.
