Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) Template

All CDAs (often referred to as NDAs) governing the exchange of proprietary or confidential information involving UHN researchers must be reviewed by TDC.  

To transfer and protect confidential information shared between two parties, please use UHN's Confidential Disclosure Agreement Template HERE.  Use of the UHN template will ensure faster review of the agreement. 

Once reviewed and signed, please email the partially-signed CDA to the attention of TDC at tdc@uhnresearch.ca.

Please don't hesitate to contact TDC with any questions. 

Sponsored Research Agreement (SRA) Template

SRAs are used when industry, government or another non-academic third party (ie, the sponsor) wishes to work collaboratively with a UHN investigator or team to pursue a project of mutual interest, and is willing to provide financial support in pursuit of the project.        

UHN's Sponsored Research Agreement template can be found HERE.  Use of the UHN template will ensure faster review of the agreement. 

Both Service Agreements and Sponsored Research Agreements are subject to institutional overhead, at a rate of 40%.

Service Agreement (SA) Template

SAs are used when industry, government or another non-academic third party (ie, the requestor) is looking to engage a UHN investigator or team to perform research tasks on behalf of the requestor. UHN investigators tend to prefer more collaborative arrangements, such as Sponsored Research Agreements.
