To ensure our objectivity and credibility, we carry out all AGLG performance audits consistently with standards that have been set by a recognized and independent professional body. In Canada, the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board sets standards for performance audits.
AGLG performance audits are carried out independently of the provincial government and other agencies. The Auditor General for Local Government Act ensures that the AGLG functions at arm’s length from government, allowing the office to do our work objectively and in an unbiased manner.
The AGLG is accessible to local governments and to taxpayers. A vital two-way connection is maintained through this website, through our responsiveness to enquiries by telephone and email and, most importantly, through the face-to-face contacts we make across the province.
The AGLG operates transparently, sharing information with audited local governments on the nature of audit work as well as the evidence we gather, in addition to providing the proposed final audit report for your local government’s review.
We make all our reports publicly available to ensure transparency.
