Visibility and funding acknowledgement guidelines

In line with the Policy on Communications and Federal Identity, these guidelines provide direction for the use of FedDev Ontario’s identifier and the Canada wordmark and outline expectations for acknowledgement of projects and activities funded by the Agency.

General requirements

When recipients share information publicly about a FedDev Ontario-funded project, they must acknowledge the Government of Canada’s support through FedDev Ontario. Government of Canada funding must be acknowledged in all communications products related to the funded project for the period covered by the Contribution Agreement.

This acknowledgement must appear on all printed or electronic documents, marketing materials, public reports, publications and media products related to the funded project. Verbal acknowledgement of FedDev Ontario’s support should occur during speaking opportunities at public events related to the funded project.

While bilingual acknowledgement of FedDev Ontario’s support is preferred, if space is limited, it is acceptable to use an acknowledgement in the first official language of the community where the project is located.

Recipients may be asked to exclude or remove FedDev Ontario funding acknowledgements from their communications products at FedDev Ontario’s discretion.
