Message from the

CHAIR AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Dear community leaders and organizations: Thank you for the work that you do on behalf of Saskatchewan communities and residents which, though often unrecognized, is immeasurable in the benefits it brings. The Community Initiatives Fund (CIF) is proud to be able to support your efforts and dedication to community in some way.

Alan Tanchak Chairperson

Tracey Mann Executive Director

Our most obvious form of support is demonstrated through our grant programs. In 2014/2015 we approved $9,301,349 in total grants for 707 projects. This includes 540 projects totalling $6,990,957 through our Community Grant Program, 162 projects totalling $2,070,767 through the Community Places and Spaces Program, and grants to 5 Exhibition Associations totalling $239,625. The 2014/2015 year marked the first year of a few key program changes. Most significant was the amalgamation of four programs into one Community Grant Program. This change was implemented by the CIF Board to provide you with simplified access to our funding opportunities. With the retirement of the Community Vitality Program in March 2014 we introduced a new, two-year Community Places and Spaces Program to continue to provide grants to support small capital projects intended to upgrade and enhance accessibility and sustainability of important community facilities. We also introduced an on-line application system for both grant programs as we begin to better embrace technology as an important tool in our work.

CO M M UN IT Y IN ITIATIVE S F UN D • A N N UA L RE PO RT 201 4-1 5


Four new adjudication committees, comprised of volunteers from throughout the province, were established to review applications to the Community Grant Program, with a fifth committee remaining in place to review Community Places and Spaces Program applications. These 32 volunteers are critical in the delivery of our programs, providing regional knowledge and expertise to ensure that the CIF remains aware of, and responsive to community priorities throughout the province. On behalf of the CIF Board, we extend our sincere appreciation for the significant time and dedication you bring to this role. The CIF Board has prioritized supporting Saskatchewan’s nonprofit sector as one of its strategies during the past four years, and we continue to seek ways in which to do so. In addition to the grants we provide for program delivery and projects, we also provide grants to support community leadership development, volunteerism, and training that enhances the ability of nonprofit organizations and community groups to better serve their audiences. We are working in other ways too to support the nonprofit sector provincially through our involvement in and endorsement of broader provincial initiatives. This includes our ongoing leadership role with the Saskatchewan Nonprofit Partnership (previously known as the Saskatchewan Network of Nonprofit Organizations). In recent months we have also become involved with the Voluntary Sector Studies Network, a new initiative of Luther College at the University of Regina.

Future plans include collaborating with other funders and stakeholders as we identify opportunities to combine our resources and efforts to better support organizations as they work to provide important services to benefit Saskatchewan residents. We appreciate our relationship with the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport and the Government of Saskatchewan for their ongoing support of the CIF. We also wish to acknowledge Darlene Bessey and Cara Merasty who have served as members of the CIF Board for the past eight years and whose terms end this spring. Both have contributed significantly to the growth of the CIF, and we thank Darlene for the leadership and vision she brought in her role as Chair of the Board for six years. In closing, thank you again for the important work you do now and into the future.

Sincerely,

Alan Tanchak Chairperson

Tracey Mann Executive Director

Our

PROGRAMS The CIF envisions vibrant, resilient, sustainable and proud Saskatchewan communities whose citizens are engaged and actively working to enhance quality of life. The CIF provides grants for communityled projects that help foster community development, inclusion and leadership in Saskatchewan. These grants support opportunities that prepare youth for the future; celebrate community achievements; ensure people have access to sport, culture, recreation, and other programming and services; and ultimately create a sense of belonging and pride in our communities. The CIF recognizes programming that enhances human development and community vitality which is fundamental for individual success in life as well as the long-term success of our communities and province.

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

Community Grant

PROGRAM The CIF provides grants to a wide range of programs and initiatives through the Community Grant Program. These programs provide positive opportunities for children and youth to grow and develop skills, self-esteem, and a healthy lifestyle; ensure families have access to support and resources to create healthy, caring and safe environments; celebrate the history and accomplishments of Saskatchewan communities; and encourage and support individuals to become involved as active citizens, volunteers, and community leaders. Programs and initiatives such as these allow communities to flourish through enhancing the wellbeing and quality of life of the people making up their communities. Grant Recipient

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 that 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.

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, 2015, 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, 2015, 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, 2015 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 2015 Sask Sport Inc. was paid $190,000 (2014 - $200,400). 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, 2015 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.

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.
