MFN – Results of 2015-16 General Assessment

MFN – Results of 2015-16 General Assessment


Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and Health Canada annually conduct the General Assessment (GA) which is a tool that is currently used to provide a recipient-focused, risk-based approach to transfer payment management for First Nations.  It provides a standardized process to assessing capacity to deliver programs and services. MFN has been informed of the results of the annual assessment which was carried out between August 2015 and November 2015, which generates a resulting overall risk rating.  We are pleased to announce that MFN received a “low” risk rating again this year, which is the best score provided, under the following categories:

.        Governance – Low Risk

.        Planning – Low Risk

.        Financial Management – Low Risk

.        Program Management – Low Risk
