SCRD Wins Canadian Award for Financial Reporting for Thirteenth Year in a Row

Sunshine Coast Regional District

SECHELT - The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) has awarded the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) the Canadian Award for Financial Reporting. This is the 13th consecutive award presented to the SCRD for surpassing the requirements of generally accepted accounting principles and demonstrating an effort to clearly communicate the regional district’s financial picture.
 
The Canadian Award for Financial Reporting program was established to encourage municipal governments throughout Canada to publish high quality financial reports and to provide peer recognition and technical guidance for officials preparing these reports. Its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
 
“I am pleased to offer congratulations on behalf of the Board to staff for producing such a fantastic, multi-award winning annual report,” says Garry Nohr, SCRD Board Chair. “The SCRD is committed to pursuing operational excellence, and it is important to recognize our Financial Services division who work so hard every day to achieve it.”
 
The award was presented to the SCRD’s Corporate Services Department for the 2015 Annual Financial Report. The report has been judged by impartial Canadian Review Committee members to meet the high standards of the program, including demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” designed to clearly communicate the SCRD’s financial information and to motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.
 
“I am extremely proud of our staff’s commitment to excellence,” says Tina Perreault, SCRD Chief Financial Officer. “I would like to commend all those involved for their professionalism and hard work in making our annual report both informative and easily accessible for all Sunshine Coast residents.”
