Meeting the Requirements of the Community Charter Community Charter

Ministry of Community, Aboriginal, and Women’s Services

Fall 2003

Preface This guide is the result of a collaborative effort by the Local Government Management Association, the British Columbia Government Finance Officer’s Association and the Ministry of Community, Aboriginal and Women’s Services. The purpose of this guide is to assist municipalities with the new annual reporting requirements under the Community Charter. Under the Charter, municipal councils are now required to prepare an annual report regarding financial and operational information related to the municipality. As part of their reports, municipalities are also required to include a progress report respecting the previous year in relation to objectives and measures established for that year. This guide is intended to provide local governments with a variety of tools that will assist them in setting up their individual reporting schemes. It includes a calendar of key dates for when progress reporting will be implemented, guidelines on setting objectives and measures, as well as sample annual reports. An extensive list of resources is also included for those local governments who may need further assistance in developing their reporting systems.
