Below you will find links to “good practice” resources developed by other legislative audit offices and professional bodies across Canada and worldwide. Public sector organizations in Manitoba may find this information useful in assessing and continually improving their own operations.

In these links, you will find:

  • Best practice guides
  • Backgrounders
  • Discussion papers
  • Checklists
  • Self-assessment tools

Our office’s reports frequently refer to good practices, and many of our recommendations are based on best practices. We have compiled this best practice resource to help public sector entities find best practices they may wish to pursue. These resources were developed by different jurisdictions for varying purposes. It is important for public sector organizations in Manitoba to evaluate their own unique context when considering the usefulness of any of this information. Any inquiries regarding these resources should be made directly to the publisher.

We used the Canadian Audit and Accountability Foundation’s Performance Audit Guidance Inventory when developing this resource. If you are interested in the work of CAAF, visit their website at

We encourage Manitobans to provide us with information related to one of our on-going project audits, or to potential audits. This information may help our audit teams identify concerns and potentially influence what an audit will examine.
