Audit of Official Languages
June 2012

Statement of assurance

We have completed the internal audit of Official Languages at the Department of Justice. The overall objective of this audit was to provide assurance that the management framework in place to govern the activities of the official languages group in the Corporate Staffing, Official Languages and Recognition Unit is effective and that the Department is complying with the requirements of the Official Languages Act.

The internal audit was planned and conducted in accordance with the Internal Auditing Standards for the Government of Canada. Footnote 1 The audit was undertaken in a manner consistent with the Treasury Board (TB) Policy on Internal Audit and related guidelines and procedures, and with generally accepted auditing standards. In our professional judgment, sufficient and appropriate audit procedures have been conducted and evidence gathered to support the accuracy of the opinion provided and contained in this report. The opinion is based on a comparison of the conditions, as they existed at the time of the audit (September 2011 – January 2012), against pre-established audit criteria that were derived from the Framework of Core Management Controls and Audit Criteria (CMC – May 2010) established by the Office of the Comptroller General of Canada (OCG).
