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: (988603). Mar 29, 2022 - Mar 31, 2024
Description:

There are about 7,000 different hereditary diseases each due to the mutation of a gene. These genes are expressed in different cells. The treatment of these diseases requires the delivery of a normal gene or of gene modifying agents to the appropriate cells, i.e. those involved in the disease.

Description:

The CRISPR/Cas system has revolutionized the analysis of gene function in mammalian cells. Cas cuts DNA at specific genomic region by associating with a single guide RNA (sgRNA) molecule whose sequence is complimentary to the genomic DNA to be targeted.

Agreement: (978650). Sep 1, 2021 - Aug 31, 2022
Description:

This project aims to develop an analytical method to measure transduction efficiency at the single-cell level in a gene-modified, viral-vector based immunotherapy model. The method will employ digital droplet PCR (ddPCR) implemented in polymer microfluidic devices to encapsulate engineered cells with appropriate reagents (lysis and PCR master mix), including vector specific primers and hydrolysis probes, as well primers and probes for the reference gene. The encapsulated droplets will then be subjected to thermal cycling and subsequently arrayed in a monolayer format for fluorescence imaging.

Description:

More recently, NK cells, modified with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR-NK cells), are being explored as potential off-the-shelf therapy and these have shown better efficacy and lower toxicity than equivalent CAR-T cells in pre-clinical animal models.
