Financial Reporting Award For City

Public Service Announcement

Post Date:03/15/2017

Whitehorse – The City has once again received the Canadian Award for Financial Reporting (CAFR) for its 2015 Annual Report.

The CAFR program recognizes achievement from governmental participants in comprehensive financial reporting. Receiving this award for the 12th year in a row is a significant accomplishment for the City.

The City’s 2015 Annual Report has been judged by an impartial review committee member with expertise in public sector financial reporting to meet the high standards of the program.  These standards include demonstrating transparency and a constructive ‘spirit of full disclosure’ designed to clearly communicate the municipality’s financial story while encouraging citizens to read and understand the report.

The Government Finance Officers Association, which serves almost 19,000 government finance professionals in Canada and the U.S., recently presented this award to the City’s Financial Services Department.
