2010 Fall Report of the Auditor General of Canada

Appendix C—Report on the audit of the President of the Treasury Board’s report Tabling of Crown Corporations Reports in Parliament

Tablings in Parliament for parent Crown corporations: Annual reports and summaries of corporate plans and budgets

Section 152 of the Financial Administration Act (the Act) requires the President of the Treasury Board to lay before each House of Parliament a report on the timing of the tabling, by appropriate ministers, of annual reports and summaries of corporate plans and of budgets of Crown corporations. This report of the President of the Treasury Board is included in the 2010 Annual Report to Parliament—Crown Corporations and Other Corporate Interests of Canada, which must be tabled by 31 December.

The Act requires the Auditor General of Canada to audit the accuracy of the President of the Treasury Board’s report on the timing of tablings and to present the results in her annual report to the House of Commons.

At the time that our annual report was going to print, we were unable to include the results of the above audit, since the President of the Treasury Board’s report had not yet been finalized. The auditor’s report, which is required by the Act, will therefore be included in the next Report of the Auditor General to the House of Commons. It will also be appended to this year’s report of the President of the Treasury Board.
