At SDTC, we are committed to demonstrating transparency. Along with a listing of all projects we have funded since our inception in 2001, the following information highlights our commitments under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act. We also proactively disclose our executive team’s expenses and other information we believe should be publicly available.
The Access to Information Act is a federal statute that provides a process for Canadian citizens, permanent residents, persons physically in Canada, or corporations present in Canada to request access to any record of certain institutions of the federal government. These institutions, such as SDTC, are required to provide access to records under their control upon receiving formal request for information made pursuant to the Access to Information Act unless the records or portion thereof are exempted or excluded from disclosure.Learn More
The submission of a request does not guarantee that complete access will be provided to the records. SDTC must apply the exemptions and exceptions provided under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act when disclosure could be expected to injure private or public interests.
SDTC invests in projects across the country, which often requires our employees to travel to different regions in order to carry out day-to-day operations, conduct due diligence, monitor projects and meet with companies.
The rules and guidelines for reimbursing travel and hospitality expenses are contained in SDTC’s Travel and Expense Claim Policy*. This policy provides directives for reimbursement of legitimate and reasonable expenses incurred while conducting business on behalf of SDTC. Business travel and hospitality expenses on this site will be updated quarterly.
Please note that information that would not be disclosed under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act will not appear on this site.
