Reporting for Regional Service Commissions
Legislated Reporting Requirements
Section 602.34 of the Municipal Government Act requires that each regional services commission prepare an annual financial information return and a financial information return. These reports, including the auditor's reports and the Excel template for download, should be returned electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1 of each year.
Alberta Municipal Affairs has developed a short guide to assist municipal officials and other stakeholders to interpret financial statements.
