ONRP3: Communications Guidelines

Applicant Communications Guidelines

Funding Acknowledgement Logo Bars

When sharing Ontario Regional Priorities Partnership Program (ON-RP3) project information and outcomes (i.e. news releases/articles, presentations, scientific journals/posters, reports/studies, videos, websites, etc.), communications products must be reviewed and approved by the Agricultural Adaptation Council (AAC), Ontario Genomics (OG), and Genome Canada (GC) prior to print and/or distribution. The Communications and Data Sharing Plan for your project is outlined in Section 7 of your application.

Review Process:

  • All materials should include the ON-RP3 logos and/or the tagline. Electronic versions of the logos and communications products templates can be accessed on the AAC website.
  • Project communications products should be emailed to Erin Genge, in a format that can be edited (i.e. doc, docx, pptx, etc.). In the email, provide the following information: Means of Distribution, Target Audience, Expected Reach, Targeted Release Date. Note: draft communications products will not be accepted for review, ensure all edits are made before submitting the final product.
  • AAC will complete a preliminary review of the communications product before forwarding the piece for further review by OG and GC.
  • Upon final approval, the product will be emailed back to the applicant
  • The review process takes approximately seven to ten (7-10) business days for standard communication products. Please allow adequate time for this review.
  • If you are submitting numerous products at one time or products that are lengthy or technical in nature, additional review time may be required.

Logo Usage:

  • All logos must be surrounded by ample white space, free from any distracting elements
  • Logos cannot be incorporated into a headline, phrase or sentence
  • Logos need to be consistent with each other in size, density, weight and colour
  • Logos should appear in equal height on the same line in the following order: Genome Canada (left justified), Ontario Genomics, Agricultural Adaptation Council (right justified)
  • If you are including the logo for the Academic Lead and/or Industry Lead with the AAC, OG and GC identifiers, contact the AAC before you finalize your communications products and we can update the logo bar for you
