Legislated reporting requirements
Section 602.34 of the Municipal Government Act requires that each Regional Services Commission (RSC) prepare an annual financial statement and a financial information return.
These reports, including the auditor's reports and the Excel template for download, should be returned electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1, of each year.
Alberta Municipal Affairs has developed a short guide to assist municipal officials and other stakeholders to interpret financial statements.
For help completing and remitting financial reporting forms, contact an advisor.
