Municipal Financial Reporting

The province requires municipalities to provide financial information in a standard reporting format consistent with current public sector accounting practices and in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for municipal governments recommended by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants.

This standardized financial reporting allows the provincial government to analyze, compare and use the financial information to ensure the sustainability of healthy, vibrant communities throughout Nova Scotia.

This section outlines the municipal audit process, and contains reporting templates and manuals to guide municipalities in preparing their reports.
