On October 21, 2005, the government announced its commitment to proactively disclose the awarding of grants and contributions, as part of its Management Improvement Agenda. The disclosure threshold is currently set at $25,000. Proactive disclosure of grants and contributions represent a continuation of the phased introduction of proactive disclosure requirements that started with travel and hospitality, contracts for goods and services, and position reclassification information. The disclosure of grants and contributions will follow a quarterly disclosure schedule that sees agreements reported on departmental websites within 60 calendar days of the end of each reporting period.
This Website provides information on grants and contributions awarded by or on behalf of Transport Canada. Beginning on May 31, 2006, and every three months thereafter, this Website will be updated to include information on new grants and contributions awarded by the Department in the previous quarter. The rules and principles governing government awarding of grants and contributions are defined in the 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. Payments that are made in exchange for goods or services are contracts and are subject to the Government Contract Regulations, Trade Agreements and the Contracting Policy.
Please note that information that would normally be withheld under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act does not appear on this Website.
