Auditor General of Canada to Appear Before Standing Committee

IQALUIT, Nunavut (March 25, 2014) – The Auditor General of Canada, Mr. Michael Ferguson, will appear before the Legislative Assembly’s Standing Committee on Oversight of Government Operations and Public Accounts at 1:30pm on Tuesday, April 1, 2014, on the occasion of the Standing Committee’s hearings on the reports of the Auditor General to the Legislative Assembly on Education in Nunavut and Safety of Schools and Childcare Facilities in Nunavut. The hearings will be held from April 1-3, 2014.

“These are the first reports of the Auditor General to be considered by the new Assembly,” said Standing Committee Chairperson George Hickes, MLA for Iqaluit-Tasiluk. “Our hearings will provide an opportunity to scrutinize the government’s progress in addressing the concerns and recommendations of the Auditor General.”

The Standing Committee’s hearings on the Auditor General’s 2014 Follow-up Report on Child and Family Services in Nunavut will be held later this year on a date to be announced.

The Standing Committee’s hearings will take place in the Chamber of the Legislative Assembly and are open for the public to observe. The hearings will be televised on local community cable stations and direct-to-home satellite service on the Bell (channel 513) and Shaw (channel 289 – classic / channel 489 – new lineup) networks.
