Data on grants
The Ontario Trillium Foundation posts past grant data in a simple and easy-to-use format.
The published data includes all approved OTF grants:
Data on Catchment areas
OTF has divided Ontario into 16 catchment areas, enabling us to make granting decisions at a local level. You can view the catchment map to find out which catchment applies to you.
These two files below match OTF Catchment geography to Statistics Canada Census Divisions municipalities. Use of these files allows for OTF Open Data to be linked to data sets using Statistics Canada geographic definitions, increasing the usability of OTF Open Data.
Investment Summary Reports
OTF’s analysis of our grant making prepared for the Board is made available to understand the impact of our investments in communities and help us all to learn and improve.

Travel Meals and Hospitality Expenses
In compliance with the Management Board of Cabinet's expense disclosure requirements, OTF publicly posts travel, meal and hospitality expense information. Our staff can claim — and be reimbursed for — necessary travel, meal and hospitality expenses they pay for, during the course of their work for the Foundation. Expense claims are governed by rules which outline what can be repaid with public funds, and what maximum amounts can be claimed.
