Financial Integrity

Board of Directors

MSC Canada has an independent board who meet monthly to review the finances and operations of the organization and to make decisions regarding the use of funds. A subcommittee of the board acts as an audit committee and are responsible for ensuring internal controls are adequate and that the organization’s financial statements are accurate. They meet annually with our external auditors to review such matters.

Charitable Status

MSC Canada is a Canadian registered charitable organization and accordingly donations are eligible for Canadian tax credit. As such we are required by the CRA to file an annual report (copies are available on their website) and are subject to CRA audit. Our most recent audit by the CRA in 2013 indicated they were satisfied that we were fully in compliance with their regulations.
