CAnFR Award Program Submittal Instructions

Email: Submit one copy of the annual financial report, the completed application and responses to prior year comments (if applicable) in PDF format to GFOA. If the annual financial report is too big to attach, provide the precise hyperlink address to the specific page which contains the annual financial report in the email. If payment will be made by check, indicate clearly in the email that payment will be sent separately. Also, when mailing the check, indicate that it is payment for a Canadian Award for Financial Reporting review and send it with a copy of the application only.

Hardcopy: To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, GFOA staff have transitioned to a remote working environment, which requires some temporary adjustments to our process. This means that for the foreseeable future, we will not be able to accept hard copy, CD or flash drive submissions for our award programs; only electronic submissions will be accepted. Once public health officials deem it safe to do so, we will resume our normal operations but we always encourage PDF submissions.

Mailing address:

A fee is not required if this is your second year submission to the Program and the award was not granted in the immediate prior year for a report that was submitted to the Program for the first time.
