In the CAAF Fellowships, participants from our partner supreme audit institutions (SAIs) learn from Canadian auditors and develop the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to become leaders in their SAIs’ performance audit departments. Fellows observe and contribute to the work of a Canadian legislative audit office, while also developing an audit plan that they will implement in their own office.
The 2022-2023 Fellowships included both virtual programming that Fellows completed from their countries and time spent working in Canada. In the virtual component, from November 2022 through January 2023, the Fellows began work on their audit plan projects and participated in training, a book club, and meetings with mentors from their Canadian host offices. From February to July 2023, the Fellows came to Canada, where they worked with an audit team at their host office, participated in CAAF courses, met with other audit offices and institutions, and finished developing their audit plan projects.
The Fellowships are a key part of our international program, in which CAAF and our Canadian partners are helping to advance performance auditing in the participating countries.
