Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) – Call for Proposals

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC)  issued a call for proposals under its 2014-15 Contributions Program for project proposals aimed at promoting privacy and the protection of personal information in the private sector.

Deadline:
Faculty of Education Research Office: At least one week prior to agency deadline
Research Services: At least 3 days prior to agency deadline
OPC: January 6, 2014

Amount: The maximum amount that can be awarded for any single project is $50,000 and a maximum of $100,000 can be awarded per organization.

Description: The Office encourages applicants to submit proposals that focus on the OPC’s four priority areas: 1) identity integrity and privacy; 2) information technology and privacy; 3) genetic information and privacy; and 4) public safety and privacy.  However, the Office will consider proposals in other areas related to privacy and protection of personal information in the private sector. The OPC Contributions Program is structured to fund one-year projects that are initiated and completed within the same fiscal year that funding is provided ( April 1 – March 31). The OPC may occasionally fund projects that extend beyond the end of the fiscal year in cases where the research requires more time to be completed.
