Outsourced Internal Audit Reports
As part of the City's efforts to promote greater independence, openness, transparency and accountability of the audit function, Council authorized the outsourcing of the internal audit function. Internal audit supports both Council and administration in achieving their goals, strategic objectives and legislated responsibilities. Internal audit is responsible for assisting Council in holding itself and its administrators accountable for the quality of stewardship over public funds and for achievement of value for money in municipal operations.

Section 296 of the Municipal Act requires that all municipalities undertake an annual audit of their accounts and that the external auditor express an opinion on the financial statements based on the audit.
