Archived — Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC) Repayment Status Report

November 1, 2014

The Industrial Technologies Office (ITO) publishes a semi-annual status report to enhance transparency of its legacy program - Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC).

TPC provided repayable contributions for innovative research and development (R&D) projects contracted between 1996 and 2006.

TPC projects were long-term (up to 30 years) commencing with an R&D phase, followed by a benefits phase – the period in which a product, or a technology, could generate revenue for the company. In such cases, repayments would flow back to the program according to the terms and conditions of the company's contribution agreement.

Approximatively 2 percent of active projects are still in the R&D phase and repayments are not expected for a number of years. TPC repayments are in line with forecasts and are continuing to increase. The final TPC repayments are not expected until 2035.

TPC Program Highlights:

  • Total number of active projects: 172
  • R&D phase projects (repayments are not yet due): 4
  • Benefits phase projects (subject to repayments): 168
  • Total authorized assistance for all projects: $3.37 billion
  • Total disbursements to date: $3.16 billion
  • Total cumulative repayments to date: $1.02 billion
  • Total repayments collected in 2014-2015: $38 million

Please refer to the Explanatory Notes at the end of the following table for more information.

Explanatory notes:

  • Contribution Date: is the date that a company signed its contribution agreement. If a company has more than one project, the date indicated is the earliest contribution agreement signing date.
  • Company: is the name of the legal entity which currently has one or more TPC contribution agreements.
  • Authorized Assistance: represents the maximum amount contracted at the time of the initial contribution agreement. As the R&D progresses and a project reaches its conclusion the final disbursed amount could be much lower.
  • Net Expenditures: represents the total amounts disbursed toward projects that have completed their R&D phase, net of any recoveries. Amounts are not provided until completion of the R&D phase to protect commercial confidentiality.
  • Repayments: represents the amount collected to date and/or the information that a company has allowed ITO to disclose. Should a company have several contribution agreements its decision to disclose repayments may not extend to all TPC projects. In some cases, the repayment obligations of a TPC contribution required a company to provide share warrants to the Government as partial or full repayment. Warrants, which may be sold, are a right to acquire the company shares at a certain price for a period of time. If warrants are sold, the sale amount received is recorded as a repayment.
