(Chicago) – The Canadian Award for Financial Reporting has been awarded to
Town of Oliver, British Columbia by Government Finance Officers Association
of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its 2019 annual financial report.
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.

The annual financial 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 municipality’s financial story and to motivate potential users
and user groups to read the report.

Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) advances excellence in
government finance by providing best practices, professional development,
resources, and practical research for more than 21,000 members and the
communities they serve.
