The Province of B.C.’s Summary Financial Statements reported $80 billion of public sector financial activity last fiscal year. The financial statements are the main part of the Public Accounts, released in August. 

Our independent audit found three areas of concern, leading to a qualified audit report for the 16th consecutive year. 

Today’s report is to help MLAs as they consider the Summary Financial Statements and the implications of our audit.
