Disclosure of Grants and Contributions Awards Over $25,000

On October 21, 2005, as part of its Management Improvement Agenda, the Government announced its commitment to proactively disclose the awarding of grants and contributions (Gs&Cs) over $25,000.

The Treasury Board Policy on Transfer Payments outlines the rules and principles governing government grants and contributions. Transfer payments are monetary payments, or transfers of goods, services or assets to third parties, including Crown corporations, on the basis of an appropriation. Transfer payments do not result in the acquisition by the Government of Canada of any goods, services or assets. These expenditures are reported in the Public Accounts of Canada. The major types of transfer payments are grants, contributions and 'other transfer payments'.

As per the Policy on Transfer Payments, the Open Government site is updated each quarter to include information on grants and contributions over $25,000 awarded by the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC).
