Understanding Our Audit Opinion on B.C.'s 2016/17 Summary Financial Statements

September 1, 2017

Under section 11 (1) of the Auditor General Act, we completeĀ an annual audit of the B.C. government's Summary Financial Statements. At the end of this process, we issue an audit opinion that is published with the financial statements in government's Public Accounts. The opinion says whether or not the financial statements present government's financial position and results for the year fairly, and in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles.
