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: (7375450 P005181001). Jun 27, 2017 - Mar 31, 2021
Description:

This project aims to increase gender balance across United Nations (UN) operations. Based on the findings of the Global Study on Implementation of Security Council resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325), it is critical that dedicated technical capacity on gender equality and women’s participation and leadership is placed at the center of current UN peace and security reform efforts. This project supports the placement of a Senior Gender Advisor from UN Women to the Executive Office of the Secretary General. The Senior Gender Advisor‘s role is to inform processes of planning, analysis and policy at the highest levels of the UN to promote the integration of gender equality within the organization and its operations.

Description:

The project aims to support and incentivize efforts to increase the meaningful participation of uniformed women in United Nations (UN) peace operations. The project seeks to accelerate progress towards achieving the United Nations Security Council’s declared target of doubling the rate of women’s participation within police and military contingents by 2020 compared to 2015, as well as supporting targets to increase the proportion of women serving as military observers, staff officers and individual police officers.

Agreement: (7416431 P008787001). Jan 17, 2020 - Dec 31, 2020
Description:

This project supports pre-deployment training for Ghana Armed Forces, especially women, to enhance their skills and knowledge in communication, peacekeeping command structures, and gender and conflict dynamics for participation in peacekeeping missions. A huge barrier to women’s participation in UN peace operations is the lack of capacity and will among the UN and troop/police contributors. Ghana is a key troop and police contributing country to the UN, and has manifested its willingness to increase the number of women in uniform in accordance with the UN Uniformed Gender Parity Strategy. This project is collaborating with the Ghana Armed Forces to conduct a 14-day intensive course for military officers, mostly women, to help prepare them for deployments to UN peacekeeping operations.

Agreement: (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: (7437076 P011021001). Jan 13, 2022 - Sep 4, 2024
Description:

This project aims to create an inclusive workplace culture and support gender parity across the United Nations (UN) Departments of Peace Operations and Peacebuilding and Political Affairs at all levels, in headquarters and in the field. Through an in-depth assessment of existing policies, leadership training, development and advocacy to adopt new strategies this project seeks to enable transformational change. Driving gender equality for the UN’s peace operations and political missions will not only improve work conditions for men and women, it will make UN operations more inclusive and responsive to the peace and security needs of the populations they serve.

Agreement: (7392755 P005743001). Aug 9, 2018 - Dec 31, 2022
Description:

The project aims to increase women’s political representation and participation in public decision-making throughout the Americas and the Caribbean and to reduce the gender gap in leadership through increased engagement and coordination of Inter-American and United Nations institutions, regional women's organizations and member States. The Task Force aims to strengthen collaboration between partners’ institutional efforts; fill key policy and programming gaps through evidence-based collaboration; and amplify existing initiatives to make them more accessible to marginalized women. It is a collaborative initiative between the Inter-American Commission of Women (CIM), the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, the Pan American Health Organization, the Inter-American Development Bank, UN Women, UNDP, ParlAmericas, and the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean. CLADEM and CIWIL, two sub-regional women’s rights organizations, also joined the Task Force shortly after it was launched to include direct representation of civil society organizations.

The beneficiaries of this project include the stakeholders participating in the Task Force activities, such as representatives from member states, women’s rights organizations, academic and research institutions, and the private sector. Indirect beneficiaries include women who participate in leadership projects generated because of the work of the Task Force.

Not-for-profit organization or charity

Agreement: (NA18474). Jun 1, 2019 - Mar 31, 2023
Description:

This 46-month project will address organizational capacity needs to allow the organization to continue promoting social and systemic change towards gender equality through organizational innovations. Organizational capacity will be enhanced through the following activities: creating a suite of policy options that target the government and the private sector to increase young women’s role in decision-making spaces; and creating/implementing a fundraising model which will promote advocacy work and generate a long-term source of revenue.

The supplemental funding will be used to mitigate the impact that COVID-19 restrictions have had on the project by allowing the organization to pivot planned in-person workshops and training to online and meet the project objectives of increasing the number of young women leaders within corporations and to increase the quantity and quality of leadership opportunities available for young women leaders.
