Municipalities 2018 Annual Financial Reporting
Legislated Reporting Requirements
The Municipal Government Act requires that each municipality prepare annual audited financial statements and a financial information return. Both reports should be returned to Alberta Municipal Affairs by May 1 of each year.
Alberta Municipal Affairs has developed a short guide to assist municipal officials and other stakeholders to interpret the financial statements. A set of customizable slides is also available for download and is intended to be used for presenting the financial statements.
