About the AGLG

We help local governments in B.C. make positive change in their communities.

It’s our goal to help councils and boards do the best they can with the resources they have, delivering better services for their residents.

To do this, we audit services they provide and give advice on how those services may be improved. We also highlight where they’re doing good work, so that other local governments can learn from them, too.

Office Update

The B.C. government has made the decision to begin the process of closing the office of the Auditor General for Local Government. Our efforts are currently focused on completing any outstanding audits and our office will no longer be accepting suggestions for new audits.

The timeline for wrapping up our work is still being determined and we want to reiterate our commitment to completing the audits that are in progress.

We want to take this opportunity to thank the staff and contractors who have provided their knowledge and dedication over the years. We look forward to our continued work with our partners in the community as we focus on the work yet to be done.
