Statement on the release of Office of the Auditor General of Canada reports

The Office of the Auditor General of Canada released its reports on Yukon Capital Asset Management and Government Transfers to Societies – Yukon to the Yukon Legislative Assembly and the public today.

Maintaining healthy and safe buildings for employees and other building users is a priority for the Government of Yukon, and staff will continue working to maintain buildings, roads and bridges to meet the needs of our growing territory. The Government of Yukon is also committed to ensuring value for money through its government transfer process and is working collaboratively across all departments to address the report’s recommendations and meet commitments for managing transfer payments.

The Government of Yukon has agreed with all of the findings and recommendations that the auditor general has set out in both reports. Many of the recommendations have been actioned and are in the process of being completed.

Two Government of Yukon technical briefings on the contents of the reports will take place on Tuesday, March 7 at the Whitehorse Public Library meeting room: Yukon Capital Asset Management report briefing from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and the Government Transfers to Societies – Yukon report briefing from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
