Management’s Statement of Responsibility for Financial Reporting
The accompanying financial statement of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario has been prepared by management in accordance with the accounting policies described in Note 2 to the financial statement. The financial statement has been properly prepared within reasonable limits of materiality and is based on information available up to July 6, 2021.
Management is responsible for the integrity of the financial statement and maintains a system of internal controls designed to provide reasonable assurance that the assets are safeguarded, and reliable financial information is available on a timely basis. The system includes formal policies and procedures and an organizational structure that provides for appropriate delegation of authority and segregation of responsibilities.
The Board of Directors ensure that management fulfills its responsibilities for financial information and internal control through a Financial, Audit and Risk Management (FARM) committee. The FARM committee meets with management and internal audit regularly to review the policies and procedures.
The financial statement has been examined by the Office of the Auditor General of Ontario. The Auditor General’s responsibility is to express an opinion on whether the financial statement is prepared in accordance with the accounting principles described in Note 2 to the financial statement. The Independent Auditor’s Report, which appears on the following page, outlines the scope of the Auditor’s examination and opinion.
