CCAF-FCVI Inc. is our formal and full name. It is a contraction of the name that we were incorporated under in 1980 – The Canadian Comprehensive Auditing Foundation-La Fondation canadienne pour la vérification integrée. Although some still know us by our original name, several years ago our members approved its formal contraction to CCAF-FCVI. This was done in recognition of the fact that CCAF's work has expanded beyond advancing comprehensive, or performance, audit to include a focus on providing support to legislators in fulfilling their oversight role, as well other instruments of public sector oversight in scrutinizing the management of public funds.

CCAF was created in 1980 when the leaders of a number of public and private sector institutions led by then Auditor General of Canada, J.J. Macdonell, contributed funds to launch a research and educational organization. At that time, our singular mission was to advance the concept of comprehensive/value-for-money/performance auditing within Canadian governments. We now also provide support to legislators in fulfilling their oversight role, as well as conduct an international program that provides support and training to performance auditors and legislators in selected developing countries.

CCAF's mission is to promote and strengthen public sector performance audit, oversight and accountability in Canada and abroad through research, education and knowledge sharing. Click here to see our full strategic plan.

CCAF membership comes in two forms: individual membership; and institutional membership.

Individual Members have access to all CCAF resources and publications. Members also receive discount rates on our training courses and other events. Finally, members benefit from opportunities to network with senior-level decision makers in the public sector, and to contribute through our research and networking events.

As well as enjoying many of the benefits individual membership brings, Institutional Members have a significant voice in the operations of CCAF. They are consulted when the five-year Strategic Framework is drafted and assist in the selection of major research projects. CCAF ensures that institutional members are provided the opportunity to influence the direction of the Foundation's research and to comment on research findings. They have direct access to CCAF's capacity development tools and activities and are invited to participate in CCAF events and training courses.

Individual Membership

The annual cost for individual membership is $250.00 plus applicable taxes.

This program is funded through the Government of Canada (Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development) and targets the employees of Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) of developing countries. The purpose is to build capacity and technical knowledge in the areas associated with performance/value-for-money/comprehensive audit. The selection process for participants involves a thorough assessment of a country's SAI activities and priorities to improve public sector governance. Therefore, a prospective participant must be an employee of the SAI and their Auditor General must agree to participation in the CCAF International Program.
