SCHEDULE 3(Subsections 20(1) and (2))Content of the Project Report

  • 1 Information with respect to the proponent

    • (a) their name (including any trade name or other name used by them) and civic address;

    • (b) the name, title, civic and postal addresses, telephone number and, if any, email address of their authorized official;

    • (c) the name, title, civic and postal addresses, telephone number and, if any, email address of a contact person, if different from the authorized official;

    • (d) the federal Business Number assigned to the proponent by the Canada Revenue Agency, or, if the proponent is a charity that does not have a federal Business Number, the registered charity number assigned to them by the Canada Revenue Agency;

    • (e) a statement that the proponent has exclusive entitlement to the credits issued for the GHG reductions generated by the project and that they have documents that demonstrate that entitlement;

    • (f) a statement that the proponent has the necessary authorizations to carry out the project activities and that they have documents that demonstrate those authorizations, including, in the case of a project that is located, in part or in whole, on private property that is not owned by the proponent or that uses equipment that is not owned by the proponent, a declaration signed by the owner stating that they authorize the use of their land or their equipment to implement, as the case may be;

    • (g) a statement the proponent is in compliance with the legislative and regulatory requirements applicable to the project;

    • (h) a statement that neither the proponent nor their authorized official has been found guilty of an offence under section 380 of the Criminal Code since submitting the application for registration; and

    • (i) a statement that no credits were attributed under another GHG reduction mechanism for the GHG reductions generated by the project.

  • 2 Information with respect to the project:

    • (a) the project registration number;

    • (b) the reporting period covered by the project report;

    • (c) the title of the protocol that is applicable to the project and, if more than one version of the protocol is included in the Compendium of Federal Offset Protocols, the date of the applicable version;

    • (d) a description of any changes to the latest information provided in either the project registration application, the latest application for renewal of the crediting period or the latest project report;

    • (e) a description of the project, including the activities set out in the protocol undertaken to prevent GHGs from being emitted or to remove GHGs from the atmosphere, as applicable, and the equipment set out in the protocol, used for those activities;

    • (f) a list of the sources, sinks and reservoirs that, in accordance with the protocol, must be included in the quantification of aggregate of all of the GHGs emitted and the GHGs removed from the atmosphere based on the project activities undertaken, for each calendar year, specifying, in accordance with the protocol, if those sources, sinks and reservoirs

      • (i) are included in the baseline scenario, or

      • (ii) are included in the project scenario;

    • (g) the value that corresponds to the leakage discount factor that was applied when determining the quantity of GHG reductions, in accordance with the protocol, if applicable;

    • (h) the aggregate of all of the GHGs emitted and the GHGs removed from the atmosphere from the sources, sinks and reservoirs as specified in the protocol for the baseline scenario, quantified in accordance with the protocol, expressed in CO2e tonnes, by calendar year;

    • (i) the aggregate of all of the GHGs emitted and the GHGs removed from the atmosphere from the sources, sinks and reservoirs included in the protocol for the project scenario, quantified in accordance with the protocol, expressed in CO2e tonnes, by calendar year;

    • (j) if, for the first project report, the difference between the quantity determined for A under subsection 20(1) — or the total quantity referred to in paragraph (h) — and that determined for B under subsection 20(1) — or that referred to in paragraph (i) — indicates a net increase in GHG emissions, the quantity of GHG emissions that must be carried forward to the next project report in accordance with subsection 20(5) of these Regulations;

    • (k) the applicable percentage determined for element C in the formula set out in subsection 29(2) of these Regulations;

    • (l) any data, values, and calculation methods used to quantify the GHG reductions referred to in subsections 20(1) or (2), including any applicable GHG leakage reductions;

    • (m) any information regarding GHG reductions that the protocol requires to be included in the project report; and

    • (n) any data and calculations used to estimate missing data.

  • 3 A statement that environmental and social safeguards, as set out in the protocol, have been implemented to minimize the potential negative outcomes of the project and a description of the implemented measures.

  • 4 If the proponent is choosing not to have a project report verified in accordance with subsection 20(9), a statement that they have chosen not to have the project report verified and they have agree to not have offset credits issued for the period covered by that report.
