Auditor General of Canada

Spring 2020
Immigration Removals

Anticipated tabling: March 2020

Entities: Canada Border Services Agency; Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada; Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada

Context
The Canada Border Services Agency is responsible for enforcing the removal of foreign nationals found inadmissible to Canada. Examples include failed asylum claimants, visitors who overstay their visas, and those with criminal histories.

Audit Objective
This audit will focus on whether the Canada Border Services Agency removed individuals ordered to leave Canada as soon as possible. We will also examine the coordination of information shared by the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, which supports the agency’s monitoring and enforcement of removals.

Student Financial Assistance

Anticipated tabling: March 2020

Entities: Employment and Social Development Canada; Canada Revenue Agency; Financial Consumer Agency of Canada

Context
The Government of Canada regards investment in education and training as essential, so that Canadians can acquire the skills required for them to succeed and for the country’s economy to grow. For this reason, the federal government manages or contributes to a number of programs providing financial assistance to post-secondary students, including the Canada Student Loans Program and the Canada Education Savings Program.

Audit Objective
This audit will focus on whether Employment and Social Development Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency efficiently managed financial assistance to post-secondary students and the risks to the public purse, while helping students attend colleges and universities. The audit will also focus on whether the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada collaborated with stakeholders to strengthen students’ financial literacy.

Supplying the Canadian Armed Forces

Anticipated tabling: March 2020

Entity: National Defence

Context
At any time, the Government of Canada can call on the Canadian Armed Forces to undertake missions to protect Canada and Canadians, and to maintain international peace and stability. To prepare for and conduct these operations, the Canadian Armed Forces must be well equipped and trained. The 68,000 regular force members and 30,000 reserve force members must also be supported by a supply chain that provides them with the materiel they need, when needed. This materiel includes the goods military members use regularly, such as uniforms, specialized clothing, and rations. It also includes the equipment and spare parts needed to operate, maintain, and repair large fleets of vehicles, ships, and aircraft, as well as ammunition and fuel.

Audit Objective
This audit will examine whether National Defence delivered the requested materiel items in a timely manner while avoiding needless transportation costs.

Transportation of Dangerous Goods

Anticipated tabling: Spring 2020

Entities: Transport Canada; Canada Energy Regulator (formerly the National Energy Board)

This audit will be a follow-up on selected recommendations from our 2011 audit Transportation of Dangerous Products and our 2015 audit Oversight of Federally Regulated Pipelines.

Context
Dangerous goods are chemicals that when spilled or released have the potential to harm the health of Canadians or the environment. These goods play a key part in Canada’s economy and society. Dangerous goods are transported throughout Canada by rail, road, ship, air, and pipeline. Examples of dangerous goods are explosives, toxic gases, flammable liquids and solids, infectious substances, radioactive materials, and corrosive chemicals.

Incidents involving dangerous goods can happen via any mode of transport. Both Transport Canada and the Canada Energy Regulator aim to prevent spills and releases of dangerous goods by monitoring and enforcing industry compliance with legislation and standards.

Audit Objective
This audit will focus on whether Transport Canada and the Canada Energy Regulator implemented our 2011 and 2015 recommendations regarding their compliance and enforcement responsibilities to ensure that dangerous goods are transported safely.
