ACFO-ACAF held its 33rd Annual General meeting on October 26 at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre. This event marked the first time since 2019 that we were able to host a hybrid AGM, with members being invited to attend the event both in person and virtually. In total we had more than 75 members join us for the in-person event and additional members tuning in virtually, with more than 1,000 members in total participating in the AGM vote. Attendees were provided updates on key topics such as:

  • Collective bargaining;
  • Return to the office and telework;
  • Phoenix and Next Gen;
  • The Public Service Health Care Plan; and
  • The Comptrollership Training Centre, ACFO-ACAF’s in-house training institute.

Members who attended the event were given an opportunity to ask ACFO-ACAF President Dany Richard any questions that they had regarding the previously mentioned topics.

For those who could not attend the AGM, a recording of the event will be available on the member portal shortly.
