Discussion points:

1) Who is the auditor general in your province? What was their previous post?

2) If you are considering a career as an accountant, have you ever thought about doing your designation inside of a provincial audit office?

3) On page 1-2 of Wiley’s Financial Accounting: Tools for Business Decision-Making, we read about another former auditor general, Senator Elizabeth Marshall. Do a search of the provincial auditors general in Canada to determine how many of the current incumbents are female, and, how many of them had previously been an auditor general in another jurisdiction.
