2014-2015 International Fellows
These four auditors began their Canadian Fellowships in August 2014. They are learning about auditing and accountability, with a focus on performance audit methodologies, by undertaking audit team placements at the Office of the Auditor General of Canada, participating in a series of professional development courses, and developing plans for performance audits that will be conducted in their countries. At the end of May 2015, they will return to their offices—the Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) of their countries—to implement what they have learned in Canada.
