CANSSI Ontario Logo and Acknowledgement Text

The use of the “CANSSI Ontario” logo allows everyone to easily recognize that an activity is supported by CANSSI Ontario.

Where space and circumstances allow, a credit line that refers to CANSSI Ontario accompanies the logo. The following options may be used:

“Funded by CANSSI Ontario.”
“This project is funded [in part] by CANSSI Ontario.”
“With the participation of CANSSI Ontario.”
“This project has been made possible [in part] by CANSSI Ontario”
“We acknowledge the [financial] support of CANSSI Ontario.”

When more than one organization has provided support or there is insufficient space for a credit line, it is possible to use only the “CANSSI Ontario” logo ensuring it is in a prominent position.

You can use the "CANSSI Ontario" logo and, where space allows, the acknowledgement text on printed or electronic documents, marketing materials, public reports, publications, and media products related to the funded activities.
