Our grant programs are targeted to support initiatives that enhance individual and community wellbeing, and improve quality of life. In 2015/2016 we approved our highest annual total grants in the history of the CIF, $14,877,875, providing funding to 774 projects. This includes 593 projects totalling $12,125,093 through our Community Grant Program, 176 projects totalling $2,513,157 through the Community Places and Spaces Program, and grants to 5 exhibition associations totalling $239,625. Partnerships are integral to the CIF’s success in achieving our strategic objectives, and during the year we entered into two new significant partnerships. The Saskatchewan Index of Wellbeing is being undertaken collaboratively with Heritage Saskatchewan and Prairie Wild Consulting to develop a “made in Saskatchewan” resource. The Index will build upon the eight themes and related indicators of the Canadian Index of Wellbeing to develop a tool for tracking the wellbeing of Saskatchewan over time. Data collected and monitoring of trends will provide important information for communities and policy makers working to ensure quality of life for all Saskatchewan people. The first Saskatchewan Index of Wellbeing report is targeted for release in 2017. Further information about this initiative and how to stay involved is available on the website (saskindexofwellbeing.ca).

Northern Saskatchewan communities will benefit from a new partnership between the Saskatchewan Lotteries Trust Fund, AREVA, the Northern Sport, Culture and Recreation District, and the CIF. Through this multi-year pilot project, 22 sites designated through the Northern Community and School Recreation Coordinator Program within the Northern Administration District will have access to funding to enhance community-based programming and leadership development. Programs will benefit children, youth and families through after-school and weekend programming, cultural events, youth engagement and community planning workshops. In addition to these new projects the CIF is continuing to support and provide leadership to initiatives designed to benefit Saskatchewan’s nonprofit sector. This includes our ongoing role with the Saskatchewan Nonprofit Partnership, and the Voluntary Sector Studies Network, an initiative of Luther College at the University of Regina.

With over 1,000 grant applications received annually, these committees face a significant task in reviewing applications and every individual’s substantial contribution of time and expertise to this process is deeply appreciated. We continue to appreciate our collaborative relationship with the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport, and the support of the Government of Saskatchewan. As Board members and staff we are privileged to be involved with an agency that benefits thousands of Saskatchewan people living in all areas of our province. On a personal note, this year is my final year serving on the CIF Board of Trustees. I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to serve for eight years and would like to thank my Board colleagues for their support during the past two years I have served as Chair. In closing, thank you again for the important work you do now and into the future.

Early in 2016 the CIF undertook a Community Perspectives survey, asking for your feedback and input into the CIF’s grant program priorities and administration including changes implemented over the past three years. We received over 500 responses and the Board wishes to thank everyone who took the time to complete the survey. Your comments provided a wealth of information that will inform our planning over the coming year as we strive to remain responsive to community priorities.

Sincerely,

The Board also wishes to extend its appreciation to the volunteer members of our five grant adjudication committees.

CO M M UN IT Y IN ITIATIVE S F UN D • A N N UA L RE PO RT 201 5-1 6

Our Mission Our mission is to make knowledgeable and effective investments in community based initiatives that strengthen the capacity of communities throughout Saskatchewan.

Our Vision The CIF Board and staff visualize a future of vibrant, resilient, sustainable and proud Saskatchewan communities whose citizens are engaged and actively working to enhance quality of life.


Our Strategic

OBJECTIVES The CIF will be a strategic and innovative funder. The CIF continuously monitors and integrates community priorities and trends into its planning and programming, supporting projects that demonstrate tangible outcomes as well as new and innovative approaches to complex social challenges. Good grantmaking practises are incorporated into the CIF’s administration of grants to ensure the accountability, transparency and integrity of its investments in community-based initiatives. The CIF continues to seek out opportunities to collaborate with other funders – through its continued facilitation of the Funders Network for example – to share knowledge, practises and engage in joint initiatives. Furthermore, the CIF looks to facilitate stakeholder relationships that encourage information sharing, alignment of initiatives, engagement of partners, and leveraging of resources.

The CIF will play a key leadership role in support of community organizations. The CIF believes that nonprofit organizations and community groups are vital contributors to the wellbeing and quality of life of Saskatchewan residents. The CIF supports initiatives that build the capacity of the nonprofit sector through

resources and training that equips staff, Board members and volunteers to better serve those accessing programs offered by community based organizations. In addition to providing funding, the CIF serves in a leadership or advisory role to a number of initiatives including serving on the steering group for the Voluntary Sector Studies Network at Luther College, which is progressing towards the launch of its Certificate in Nonprofit Sector Leadership and Innovation. The CIF is also working in partnership with Heritage Saskatchewan leading the Saskatchewan Index of Wellbeing study with the first report to be launched in 2017. Finally, the CIF continues to serve as host for the Saskatchewan Nonprofit Partnership (formerly referred to as the Saskatchewan Network of Nonprofit Organizations).

The CIF’s internal capacity will be strengthened. The CIF is committed to ongoing learning for its Board, staff and adjudication committee members by continually seeking opportunities to increase our knowledge of best practices, trends and innovations in grantmaking.

Community Grant

PROGRAM The CIF provides grants to a wide range of projects and initiatives through the Community Grant Program. These projects provide positive opportunities for children and youth to grow and develop skills, self-esteem, and a healthy lifestyle, and ensure families have access to support and resources to create healthy and caring environments. In addition, projects allow for opportunities to celebrate the history and accomplishments of Saskatchewan communities and organizations, and encourage and support individuals to become involved as active citizens, volunteers, and community leaders. Summer Grants support summer camps and day programming that offer positive recreation, arts, culture and learning opportunities for children and youth during the summer months. Initiatives such as these allow communities to flourish through enhancing the wellbeing and quality of life of the people making up their communities.

Community Places and Spaces

PROGRAM Grants awarded through the Community Places and Spaces Program help improve the quality, sustainability, and long-term use of multi-purpose facilities. These facilities are utilized as community gathering places, sites for programs and events, and spaces for outdoor activities. Examples of projects include installing a wheelchair ramp at a local museum, new flooring in a community hall, reroofing a skating rink, or purchasing playground equipment. Through minor construction projects and upgrades, the lifespan and accessibility of multi-purpose facilities will be enhanced, resulting in safe and inclusive spaces where people can learn and grow together, improving the quality of life of Saskatchewan residents.

Management’s Responsibility for Financial Reporting Management has the responsibility for preparing the accompanying financial statements and ensuring that information in the Annual Report is consistent with the financial statements. This responsibility includes selecting appropriate accounting policies and making objective judgments and estimates in accordance with Canadian public sector accounting standards. In discharging its responsibilities for the integrity and fairness of the financial statements and for the accounting systems from which they are derived, management maintains the necessary system of internal controls designed to provide assurance that transactions are authorized, assets are safeguarded and proper records are maintained. Ultimate responsibility for financial statements lies with the Board of Trustees. An Audit Committee of Trustees is appointed by the Board to review financial statements in detail with management and report to the Board of Trustees prior to their approval of the financial statements for publication. These financial statements have been examined by the independent auditors, Virtus Group LLP, and their report follows. The auditors meet with both the Audit Committee and management to review their findings and have full and free access to the Audit Committee to discuss their findings regarding the integrity of the Fund’s financial reporting and the adequacy of the system of internal controls.

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT To: M embers of the Legislative Assembly Province of Saskatchewan We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Community Initiatives Fund, which comprise the statement of financial position as at March 31, 2016, the statement of operations and accumulated surplus and statement of cash flows for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information. Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with Canadian public sector accounting standards, and for such internal control as management determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error. Auditors’ Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’ judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Fund’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Fund’s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Community Initiatives Fund as at March 31, 2016, and its results of operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian public sector accounting standards.

Notes to Financial Statements March 31, 2016 1. Nature of operations:  The Community Initiatives Fund (the “Fund”), previously known as the Associated Entities Fund, was established on August 23, 1996 by The Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation Act. It is managed by a Board consisting of eight people appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council. The Board is responsible for managing and operating the Fund. Pursuant to The Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation Act, the Government of Saskatchewan receives, into the General Revenue Fund, certain gaming revenues. The Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport transfers a portion of these gaming revenues to the Fund. The Board of the Fund grants these revenues to persons, organizations or associations in Saskatchewan for purposes prescribed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council upon application to and approval by the Board. The Fund has an agreement with Sask Sport Inc. to provide administrative services to the Fund, which will expire on March 31, 2017. In 2016 Sask Sport Inc. was paid $194,560 (2015 - $190,000). 2. Significant accounting policies: The Fund uses generally accepted accounting principles as recommended by the Public Sector Accounting Board of CPA Canada (PSAB). The following accounting policies are considered significant. Grant expense:  Grants are recognized when a completed grant application is received, all eligibility criteria are met by an eligible organization, and approval is obtained from the Board. Grant returns: Grant returns are recognized when a completed follow up report is received indicating funds were not fully utilized and approval is obtained from the Board. Use of estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with the Public Sector Accounting Standards (PSAS) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Differences are reflected in current revenues and expenses when identified. Revenue recognition: Transfers from the General Revenue Fund are recognized when received or receivable. Interest revenue is recognized when earned. Investments: Fixed income investments are recorded at amortized cost.

Notes to Financial Statements March 31, 2016 3. Designated net assets:  Pursuant to directions given under the governing legislation, the Board of the Fund has designated net assets as follows:  • Community Grants to provide project grants to community initiatives that enhance human development;  • Community Places and Spaces to provide grants for small capital projects such as energy efficiencies or community facility upgrades;  • Regional Exhibition Associations to fund the activities of the associations in their communities; These designated net assets are not available for other purposes without the approval of the Board. The designated net assets exceed the available net financial assets at year end due to the timing of allocation approvals by the Board but at no time during the year, or at year end, did the net grant payments exceed the net financial assets. Changes, during the current year, to these designated net assets were as follows:

5. Financial risk management:  Credit risk: Credit risk is the risk that one party to a financial instrument will cause a financial loss for the other party by failing to discharge an obligation. The only significant receivable the Fund has at year end is with the Province of Saskatchewan which is considered to be low risk. Currency risk: Currency risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in foreign exchange rates. The Fund is not exposed to any currency risk because it deals exclusively in Canadian currency. Interest rate risk: Interest rate risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. The Fund does not borrow any funds and only invests in fixed income instruments with a guaranteed rate of return which carry minimal interest rate risk. Liquidity risk:  Liquidity risk is the risk that the entity will encounter difficulty in meeting obligations associated with financial liabilities. The Fund receives its funding from the Province of Saskatchewan prior to making grant commitments and maintains sufficient cash to meet current needs, therefore the exposure to liquidity risk is considered to be low. Price risk: Price risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. The Fund does not invest in any equity instruments and only purchases government guaranteed fixed income instruments or those issued by a major Canadian bank so the price risk is considered to be low.
