Northland School Division No. 61
There are no new recommendations for the Northland School Division in this report. The division implemented processes to improve its financial reporting—see page 51.
In May 2017, amendments to the Northland School Division Act resulted in the Auditor General no longer being the legislated auditor for the division. The Board of Trustees of the Division may now choose the external auditor, a process consistent with all other school jurisdictions in the province.
