Planned Audits and Reports

Please note – The following topics could change as could the timing of reporting. This is our best estimate at the current time for what will be reported:



Spring 2022: Community Corrections


This audit will examine Community Corrections at the Department of Justice. We will look to see whether the department is taking the necessary steps to ensure public safety. We will examine staff training, the monitoring of individuals on probation or serving conditional sentences, as well as management's oversight of the community corrections offices located throughout the province.




Spring 2022: Follow-up of Recommendations from 2017, 2018, and 2019 Performance Audits

Our annual follow-up will report on the number of recommendations departments and organizations have implemented from our 2017, 2018, and 2019 performance audits.  We are also asking departments and organizations to provide a status update on our 2020 recommendations, and where required, explanations as to why recommendations from our 2017, 2018, and 2019 audits have not yet been implemented.  We will not be conducting any formal work on these responses and will publish them as provided.
