CHAIR AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

grants to support 675 Saskatchewan community

Dear community leaders and partners, Community work is about collaboration, patience and partnerships. The Community Initiatives Fund (CIF) is a special form of partnership, designed to provide for an even better quality of life for Saskatchewan people.

Darlene Bessey Chairperson

During 2013-14, the CIF received $8,003,498 from annual net revenues generated by the casinos in Regina and Moose Jaw, which allowed us to approve $9,601,096 in grants to support 675 Saskatchewan community projects and events. We’re proud that more than 350 communities from throughout the province have now benefitted from the CIF’s support since our inception in 1996. 2013-14 was a big year for the CIF in other ways too, as we completed a full review and evaluation of our grant programs, including how they support Social Determinants of Health indicators. In response, we’ve revamped our programs for easier access and to better align with the needs and priorities of Saskatchewan communities.

Tracey Mann Executive Director

The CIF’s program changes, effective April 1, 2014, saw a broadening of the Community Grant Program to include physical activity and problem gambling initiatives, support of nonprofits, youth engagement and leadership development, and community cultural and milestone celebrations. These enhancements allowed for the retirement of the Physical Activity, Problem Gambling and Community Vitality grant programs as of March 31, 2014. A new, two-year Community Places

and Spaces Program offers grants for small capital projects, extending the Small Capital grants formerly offered through the Community Vitality Program. Our funding priorities will continue to benefit urban and rural Aboriginal peoples, newcomers, and individuals challenged by financial constraints, accessibility issues, or other barriers. Adjudication of grant applications are conducted through volunteer adjudication committees, made up of Saskatchewan people with extensive community and nonprofit experience. During the year, we enhanced the CIF’s presence through a website redesign, staff participation at trade shows, and Saskatchewan sector-based workshops. Print and radio promotional efforts bolstered the CIF’s reach to most Saskatchewan communities. Almost 1,500 residents regularly received the CIF’s electronic newsletters, which include community projects and resources for nonprofits and charities.

extends to the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport and the Government of Saskatchewan for their continued support. We look forward to continuing our growth as an organization dedicated to enhancing the wellbeing of people from all over Saskatchewan, and to growing as a knowledge resource for nonprofit, community and volunteer-based organizations across the province. Sincerely,

Darlene Bessey Chairperson

Tracey Mann Executive Director

We acknowledge the teamwork and dedication of our adjudication committee members and other grant delivery partners and agencies. This appreciation

Financial Statements of

COMMUNITY INITIATIVES FUND Year ended March 31, 2014

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.

Liabilities: Auditors’ Responsibility

Accounts payable

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.

Notes to Financial Statements March 31, 2014

Notes to Financial Statements, Cont March 31, 2014

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.

3. Designated net assets: Pursuant to directions given under the governing legislation, the Board of the Fund has designated net assets as follows:

Pursuant to The Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation Act, the Government of Saskatchewan receives, into the General Revenue Fund, certain gaming revenues. The Minister of Finance 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.

 •C  ommunity Places and Spaces to provide grants for small capital projects such as energy efficiencies or community facility upgrades;

The Fund has an agreement with Sask Sport Inc. to provide administrative services to the Fund. In 2014 Sask Sport Inc. was paid $200,400 (2013 - $194,555). The current agreement was originally signed for the term April 1, 2009 to March 31, 2012. The agreement was renewed twice, for one year terms each time, and expired on March 31, 2014. A new contract is currently being negotiated. 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.

 •C  ommunity Grants to provide project grants to community initiatives that enhance human development;

 •C  ommunity Vitality to provide project grants to community initiatives that encourage local youth, voluntary and community actions to build sustainable communities and improve quality of life;  •P  hysical Activity/Active Living to fund projects aimed at increasing physical activity;  •P  roblem Gambling for initiatives to address problem gambling;  •R  egional Exhibition Associations to fund the activities of the associations in their communities;  •Y  outh Leadership to increase access of youth projects to CIF funds and to promote engagement and leadership capacity of youth, including Aboriginal youth. 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. Changes, during the current year, to these designated net assets were as follows: Beginning of year

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.
