independent audit report, special examination — 2017.

“The Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation is a federal Crown corporation established in 1969 under the Freshwater Fish Marketing Act, for the purpose of marketing and trading in fish, fish products, and fish by-products in and outside Canada. The Corporation’s vision statement is to “maximize returns to the fishers of western Canada through effective marketing, efficient supply chain management, and the value-added processing of quality freshwater fish products.” The maximization of returns takes into consideration the need to remain financially sustainable while reinvesting in capital assets and investing in initiatives to find new markets. Our objective for this audit was to determine whether the systems and practices we selected for examination at the Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation were providing it with reasonable assurance that its assets were safeguarded and controlled, its resources were managed economically and efficiently, and its operations were carried out effectively, as required by section 138 of the Financial Administration Act. On the basis of our assessment of risks, we selected systems and practices in the following areas: corporate management practices, and management of operations"--Introd., p. 1, 3-4.
