Celebrating the 2021-2022 Fellows’ Graduation
Congratulations to CAAF’s 2021-2022 international Fellows, who graduated this September. After completing a nine-month hybrid program that combined virtual activities and time in Canada, the five Fellows have now returned to their offices, the supreme audit institutions (SAIs) of Guyana, Rwanda, and Senegal.
The new graduates are:
The Fellowships are part of CAAF’s International Governance, Accountability and Performance Program, which aims to strengthen performance auditing and oversight in our partner countries. In the Fellowships, performance auditors complete on-the-job learning with Canadian legislative audit offices, participate in courses, and develop an audit plan or other special project that they will implement at their SAI. CAAF has delivered Fellowships since 1980 and 268 Fellows, from 54 countries, have now graduated.
We celebrated the 2021-2022 Fellows’ graduation with a virtual ceremony which brought together more than 50 partners from across Canada and from the Fellows’ countries. Presenters included the Fellows, who spoke about their experience and their special project topics, as well as senior representatives of their SAIs, their Canadian host offices, and our funding partner, Global Affairs Canada.
The Fellows have now returned to work at their SAIs, where they will implement and share what they have learned and carry out their planned audit or special project. We wish them all the best and look forward to continuing to work with them and their SAIs.
Each year, the Fellows’ graduation is also an opportunity to thank the many partners who make this program possible. On behalf of CAAF and the Fellows, thank you to:
Audit Office of Guyana
Office of the Auditor General of Rwanda
Cour des Comptes du Sénégal
