A Farewell from Our Outgoing President and CEO, Carol Bellringer

My time as the Canadian Audit and Accountability Foundation’s President and CEO has come to an end. I want to express my sincere appreciation to all of you for your steadfast support of public accountability. While we all have a role to support public accountability, the power of our success comes from the people – working together, believing in each other, and helping each other to succeed. I will miss you all.

Nairobi School Visit

As Auditor General of Manitoba, I visited Kenya with the CAAF in 2009 when my office was twinned with the Office of the Auditor General of Kenya through the Foundation’s international program. This warm reception at a school outside of Nairobi was a life-changing experience.

Your work at the CAAF, as public sector auditors, and on oversight bodies, inspires me every day. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to have worked alongside you at the CAAF and in my previous roles. Together, you make our country and our world a stronger place for all of us.

I step away from the CAAF full of hope for the future – for the organization and for those we serve. The staff, associates, and board of CAAF are continuing a long tradition of great work. I am proud to have been a part of it – and am confident that I am followed by a strong leader, Paul Forgues, who will build on that tradition as the CAAF’s President and CEO.

Best, Carol
