Abstract:

'According to the latest approved corporate plan (2015-2019), VIA's mandate is to operate a passenger rail service on behalf of the Government of Canada. Therefore, the Corporation provides inter-city and long-distance travel services, as well as services for regional and remote communities. According to the Office of the Auditor General of Canada (OAG), VIA is governed by an independent Board of Directors. The President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) as well as the directors are appointed by the Governor in Council on the recommendation of the Minister of Transport. The Corporation's business is conducted by seven leaders reporting directly to the President and CEO. In its special examination of VIA, the OAG examined "whether the systems and practices that it selected for examination at VIA were providing the Corporation with reasonable assurance that its assets were safeguarded and controlled, its resources were managed economically and efficiently, and its operations were carried out effectively." On 16 June 2016, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Public Accounts (the Committee) held a hearing on this special examination"--Page 1.
