About the Audit Committee

Committee Action Plan

Who We Are

The Audit Committee is an integral part of the accountability and governance of the Society. It plays a key role assisting the Board of Directors in carrying out its legal and fiduciary responsibilities, particularly with regard to the integrity of the Society’s financial information and internal control.

What We Do

The Audit Committee undertakes various activities in order to meet its objectives. These activities include:

  • Approval of the overall scope of the audit to be conducted by the external auditors
  • Assisting in ensuring that the audit is conducted in a cost-effective, timely manner
  • Reviewing the Society’s financial statements and recommending to the Board of Directors the approval of those financial statements
  • Reviewing management commentary letters issued by the external auditors and overseeing management’s implementation of recommendations
  • Overseeing the Society’s internal control with regard to financial reporting
  • Recommending to the Board of Directors the appointment of the external auditor
  • Reviewing any non-audit services provided by the external auditor to ensure that these services would not impair the external auditor’s independence

Who Should Join

Committee members should have significant financial accounting experience and should be independent of management and the external auditors.
