Canada Emergency Response Benefit : independent auditor's report.: FA1-27/2021-1-6E-PDF

"This independent assurance report was prepared by the Office of the Auditor General of Canada on the Canada Emergency Response Benefit. Our responsibility was to provide objective information, advice, and assurance to assist Parliament in its scrutiny of the government’s management of resources and programs, and to conclude on whether the design of the Canada Emergency Response Benefit complied in all significant respects with the applicable criteria. … The objective of this audit was to determine whether: Employment and Social Development Canada and the Department of Finance Canada provided analysis to support the initial design and subsequent adjustments to the Canada Emergency Response Benefit; and Employment and Social Development Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency designed mechanisms so that the Canada Emergency Response Benefit would support eligible workers who suffered a loss of income for reasons related to COVID-19, including limiting abuse of the benefit"--About the audit, page 17.
