The financial accounting section is responsible for the preparation of the province’s public accounts containing the annual consolidated financial statements for government departments and over 90 government controlled entities.
We provide professional accounting advice, recommendations and opinions to the Province's financial community, and comments on national accounting standards under development for the Public Sector Accounting Board.
In addition, we update accounting policies in the province’s management manuals and ensure the province’s financial community is aware of accounting principles and reporting requirements.
