CICA report on Financial Reporting by First Nations

The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) has published Financial Reporting by First Nations, a ground-breaking report authorized by the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) of the CICA. Published independently of the CICA’s standard-setting process, the Report addresses the lack of accounting standards explicitly for First Nations by examining the changing environment for First Nations financial reporting, users and their needs, objectives of First Nations general purpose financial statements, and the reporting entity. The Report concludes that adopting the reporting model for governments in Canada based on the accounting recommendations of PSAB best suits the needs of preparers, auditors and users of First Nations general purpose financial reporting. The Report is the result of deliberations by members of the Study Group, and input from stakeholders, both from extensive outreach activities and comments received on the draft report.

Who are you calling Indian? – Macleans

Who are you calling Indian?
The number of those with ancestry but no ‘status’ is growing fast

JOHN GEDDES | June 25, 2008 |

Who is a real Indian? It’s a wince-inducing question. For starters, there’s that word — Indian. Replacing it with Aboriginal or First Nations person, though, is hard if the question is asked in the context of Canadian law, since the reply comes down to how the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs interprets the Indian Act provisions on who qualifies as a registered Indian. Beyond the problematic proper noun, there’s something deeply troubling about the notion that such a question should be posed at all. Does anyone really have any right to define anybody else’s racial identity? Is anybody qualified to offer even a tentative reply?
