Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) Template

A CDA is a legal contract that governs the sharing of confidential information. UHN's template CDAs ensure that disclosures in either direction, intended or otherwise, are covered by confidentiality.  A CDA needs to be in place before disclosing or receiving confidential information.

 

   CDAs are important because they:

  • Protect confidential information being shared. 
  • Outline and limit the purpose for which the information is being shared.
  • Preserve the ability to patent the invention(s) being disclosed.

 

To transfer and protect confidential information shared between two parties, please use UHN's  Confidential Disclosure Agreement template.  Once reviewed and signed, please email the partially signed CDA to the attention of TDC at tdc@uhnresearch.ca(link sends e-mail).

All CDAs involving UHN researchers must be reviewed by TDC.  Use of the UHN template will avoid delays in processing. Please contact TDC with any questions. ​
