Mayor's Message On behalf of Council, I am pleased to present the 2016 Annual Report for the Corporation of Delta. 2015 proved to be another banner year for our community. We experienced a multitude of successes and made significant progress towards long-term corporate and financial goals. Through our commitment to no new borrowing, Delta has continued its path towards being debt free prior to the end of this Council’s term. Over the course of the last year, we’ve continued to improve infrastructure in Delta, completing many projects while commencing or continuing new, important works. For example, Delta completed several components of our ongoing Neighbourhood Road Improvements Plan, including 12 road enhancement projects, 4.4 km of aging watermain replacement, and 2.2 km of sewer upgrades. Currently, Delta has 15 projects slated for completion this year, including Delta Street, Arthur Drive, and Nordel Way, among others. Delta’s infrastructure improvement projects represent Delta’s focus on transportation. With construction of the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project starting in 2017, we are also working on additional solutions to address transportation issues in Delta. It’s important that we alleviate congestion on other crossings, namely the Alex Fraser Bridge, while providing financial support for transportation infrastructure. As apparent by the congestion experienced on Annacis Island during peak hours, providing commuters with alternatives will help reduce traffic flows and improve the overall quality of life. With the newly completed North Delta Recreation Centre, we’ve rejuvenated North Delta’s Social Heart with a state-of-the-art recreation facility. Additional investments in recreation include the official opening of the field house at Dugald Morrison Park on September 19, 2015, and completion of the Ladner Sport Field Enhancement project. I look forward to the additional recreation opportunities and plans that will arise from public consultations surrounding the revamped Winskill Park site. Over the past year, Delta reiterated and reaffirmed itself as a municipality dedicated to environmental adaptation and sustainability. With initiatives like the Regional Adaptation Project for Agriculture, Trees for Tomorrow, and the Urban Reforestation project, I’m proud to say that we’ve been able to meet our goal of reducing corporate carbon emissions by 21% of our 2007 levels, a goal established in Delta’s Corporate Climate Change Initiative, and highlighted in our 2015 Climate Action Report. We have plenty of exciting developments in store for Delta, and I am passionate about maintaining accountability towards our tax payers. We are fortunate to live in a vibrant and safe community, one of which I am privileged to serve as we strive to make Delta a great place to live, work and play. Yours truly,

Lois E. Jackson Mayor

The Corporation of Delta  2016 Annual Report


Chief Administrative Officer's Report It's with great pleasure that I submit to you Delta’s 2016 Annual Report. You’ll find that this report meets and exceeds the requirements of the Community Charter, which sets out stringent reporting requirements for all municipalities in British Columbia, and contains a precise account of the Corporation of Delta’s financial records for 2015. As Delta’s Chief Administrative Officer, it is my responsibility to ensure that the Annual Report fulfills these requirements. We have, and will continue to invest in projects and services that strengthen Delta as a municipality. Through the leadership of Mayor Lois E. Jackson and Delta Council, Delta has grown as an economic and environmentally responsible community that continues to improve our infrastructure and community services, without any new borrowing. As you read through the pages of the 2016 Annual Report, it’s important to note the projects and achievements listed represent Delta’s unwavering commitment to remaining fiscally responsible and maintaining healthy financial reserves. Furthermore, Delta staff has worked hard towards effectively engaging the community about projects and issues. Through our social media outlets, Talk Delta online form, and infrastructure public open houses, we’ve received substantial insight from the public to help Delta’s projects move forward and address the questions and concerns of Delta residents more efficiently than ever before. This civic engagement has enabled us to focus our efforts towards providing a transparent discourse with the greater community and institutionalizing an environment of accountability. Ultimately, transparency is the goal of this report – to open our books and recognize the achievements and objectives of your local government and its departments. Our successes could not have come without the hard work, dedication, and teamwork that exists amongst our staff members, and for that I offer thanks and congratulations. I would also like to acknowledge the efforts of our department directors, management staff, CUPE Local 454, Firefighters IAFF 1763, Delta Police, the Delta Police Union and police civilian members. Of course, none of our achievements would be possible without the consistent leadership of Mayor Lois E. Jackson and Delta Council. Finally, thank you to the citizens of Delta, for whom we are honoured to serve. Sincerely,

George V. Harvie

Staff Speak “As a new member to the Emergency Planning division, I immediately noticed the high level of cooperation and ongoing communications amongst municipal departments and outside stakeholders which is encouraged and supported by Delta’s Mayor, Chief Administrative Officer and Council.

Observing departments working together with the common goal of making our community resilient to a major calamity is inspiring. I’ve learned that emergency preparedness is a shared responsibility and everyone has a role to play.”

2015 Audited Consolidated Financial Statements

The Corporation of Delta  2016 Annual Report


Treasurer’s Report Mayor and Council The Corporation of Delta As the Treasurer for the Corporation of Delta, I am pleased to submit the 2015 Audited Financial Statements for the Corporation of Delta pursuant to section 167 of the Community Charter. These Financial Statements are general-purpose statements and are intended to fairly present the financial results for the year and meet the needs of a variety of users. The supplementary schedules provide additional information on the activities of the Corporation. The preparation and presentation of the financial information is the responsibility of the management of the Corporation. Judgment and estimates have been used in its preparation and all efforts have been made to ensure a careful evaluation has been made of all available information. The Corporation maintains a system of internal control designed to safeguard the assets of the Corporation and produce reliable financial information. This system is routinely evaluated and revised to ensure effective controls are maintained. The external auditors, BDO, conducted an independent examination in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and have expressed their opinion that the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Corporation of Delta as at December 31, 2015. In accordance with Section 167(2) of the Community Charter, these statements must be prepared in accordance with the generally accepted accounting principles as recommended by the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB). These standards have been established by the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada to bring consistency to financial reporting by all local, provincial and federal governments. One of the primary responsibilities of the Treasurer is to manage the assets and provide overall financial stability to the municipality. The specific duties include preparation and monitoring of the operating and capital budgets, levying and collection of taxes and utilities, processing payroll and accounts payable, purchasing of goods and services, managing risk, developing and maintaining financial systems and producing financial reports in a timely manner for decisions to be made by Council and departments. The overall financial results of the Corporation were positive and within budget expectations for 2015. The accumulated surplus increased by $8 million and equity remains healthy at $128 million. The debt is steadily decreasing and was at $4.5 million at the end of 2015. No new debt has been incurred since 2003 and the municipality is expected to be debt free by 2022. Capital projects totalled $38 million in 2015. Finally, I would like to thank Mayor and Council and all the departments and organizations that contributed to the Corporation’s overall success in 2015. We are committed to providing sound financial management and providing long range planning to meet the needs of the Corporation. For 2016, we will continue to work towards financial stability and enhancing the services to the citizens of Delta to make our community a great place to live, work and play.

Respectfully submitted,

Karl D. Preuss, CA Treasurer/Director of Finance

Independent Auditor’s Report To the Mayor and Council of the Corporation of Delta We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Corporation of Delta, which comprise the Consolidated Statement of Financial Position as at December 31, 2015, and the Consolidated Statements of Operations, Changes in Net Financial Assets and 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. Auditor's Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated 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 auditor's 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 entity'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 entity'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 consolidated financial statements present fairly in all material respects, the financial position of the Corporation of Delta as at December 31, 2015, and its consolidated results of operations, changes in net financial assets and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian public sector accounting standards.

The significant accounting policies are summarized as follows:

a) Basis of Consolidation The consolidated financial statements of the Corporation of Delta (the "Corporation") reflect a combination of the municipality's general revenue, water, sewer, solid waste and reserve funds. The Ladner Harbour Authority is consolidated as it is a wholly owned municipal entity and all interfund transactions, fund balances and activities have been eliminated.

b) Basis of Accounting The consolidated financial statements are prepared using the accrual basis of accounting. The accrual basis of accounting records revenue as it is earned and measurable. Expenses are recognized as they are incurred and measurable based upon receipt of goods or services and/or the creation of a legal obligation to pay.

c) Government Transfers Government transfers, which include legislative grants, are recognized as revenue in the financial statements when the transfer is authorized and any eligibility criteria are met, except to the extent that transfer stipulations give rise to an obligation that meets the definition of a liability. Transfers are recognized as deferred revenue when transfer stipulations give rise to a liability. Transfer revenue is recognized in the statement of operations as the stipulation liabilities are settled.

d) Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash and cash equivalents include fixed return financial instruments maturing within 90 days of when purchased. They are highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which are subject to an insignificant risk of change in value. Cash and cash equivalents do not include any of the Corporation’s administered Trust Funds.

e) Portfolio Investments Investments are recorded at cost, adjusted for amortization of premiums or discounts. Provision for losses are recorded when they are considered to be other than temporary. At various times during the term of each individual investment, market value may be less than cost. Such declines in value are considered temporary for investments with known maturity dates as they generally reverse as the investments mature and therefore an adjustment to market value for these market declines is not recorded. These investments do not include any of the Corporation’s administered Trust Funds.

f) Accounts Receivable Accounts receivable are net of an allowance for doubtful accounts and therefore represent amounts expected to be collected within the next year.

g) Development Cost Charges Development cost charges are restricted by legislation to expenditures on capital infrastructure. These amounts are deferred upon receipt and recognized as revenue when the expenditures are incurred in accordance with the restrictions.

h) Non-Financial Assets Non-financial assets are not available to discharge existing liabilities and are held for use in the provision of services. They have useful lives extending beyond the current year and are not intended for sale in the ordinary course of operations. The change in non-financial assets during the year, together with the annual surplus, provides the consolidated change in net financial assets for the year.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements Year Ended December 31, 2015 with comparative figures for 2014

i) Tangible Capital Assets Tangible capital assets are recorded at cost which includes all amounts that are directly attributable to the acquisition, construction, development or betterment of the asset. The cost, less residual value, of the tangible capital assets is amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives as follows:

Buildings Vehicles Pooled Assets Machinery and Equipment Land Improvements Water Infrastructure Sewer Infrastructure Drainage Infrastructure Roads Infrastructure

10 to 45 years 3 to 15 years 3 to 30 years 10 years 15 to 35 years 30 to 75 years 30 to 100 years 30 to 150 years 15 to 60 years

Tangible capital assets received as contributions are recorded at their fair value at the date of receipt and also recorded as revenue. Natural resources are not recognized as assets in the financial statements. Assets under construction are not amortized.

j) Inventory Inventory is recorded at cost, net of allowances for obsolete stock. Cost is determined on a weighted average basis.

k) Deferred Revenue Receipts which are restricted by legislation of senior governments or by agreement with external parties are deferred and reported as deferred revenues. The amounts will be recognized as revenue in the year in which the expenditures are incurred. The municipality defers a portion of permits, licenses and other fees and recognizes this revenue in the year in which related services are performed or other related expenditures are incurred. (Notes 7 and 8).

l) Revenue Recognition Revenue is recorded on the accrual basis and is recognized when earned. Revenue unearned in the current period is reported on the Statement of Financial Position as deferred revenue or restricted revenue. Taxes are recorded at estimated amounts when they meet the definition of an asset, have been authorized and the taxable event occurs. Annual levies for non-optional municipal services and general administrative services are recorded as taxes for municipal services in the year they are levied. Taxes receivable are recognized net of an allowance for anticipated uncollectable amounts. Levies imposed by other taxing authorities are not included as taxes for municipal purposes. Through the British Columbia Assessment's appeal process, taxes may be adjusted by way of supplementary roll adjustments. The effects of these adjustments on taxes are recognized at the time they are awarded to the extent such adjustments exceed amounts already provided for. Charges for garbage, recycling, water and sewer are recorded as sale of services. A gain or loss on the disposal of tangible capital assets is recorded when the Corporation disposes or replaces tangible capital assets. The proceeds collected are offset by the net book value at the time of disposition. Contributed assets are recorded at fair value at time of transfer of ownership to the Corporation. Investment income is recorded on an accrual basis and recognized as earned. Contributed tangible capital assets are assets contributed by developers as a requirement to provide subdivision infrastructure for streets, lighting, sidewalks, sewer, water and drainage. Upon completion, these works are turned over to the Corporation. Tangible capital assets are recorded at their fair value at the date of receipt and are also recorded as revenue.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements Year Ended December 31, 2015 with comparative figures for 2014

m) Use of Estimates The preparation of financial statements in accordance with Canadian public sector accounting standards requires management to make estimates and assumptions. These 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 reporting period. Significant areas requiring the use of management estimates relate to the determination of accrued sick benefits and retirement liabilities, collectability of accounts receivable, useful lives of tangible capital assets and provisions for contingencies. The amounts recorded for tangible capital assets are based on management's estimate for historical cost, useful lives and valuation for contributed assets. Actual results could differ from estimates. Adjustments, if any, will be reflected in operations in the period of settlement. The consolidated financial statements have, in management’s opinion, been prepared within the framework of the above-mentioned accounting principles.

n) Basis of Segmentation (Note 17 and 19) Municipal services have been segmented by grouping services that have similar service objectives (by function). Revenues that are directly related to the costs of the function have been attributed to each segment. Interest is allocated based on the purpose of the specific borrowing.

o) Employee Future Benefits (Note 11 and 16) The Corporation and its employees make contributions to the Municipal Pension Plan and the employees accrue benefits under this plan based on service. The Corporation's contributions are expensed as incurred. Post-employment benefits also accrue to municipal employees. Liabilities related to these benefits are actuarially determined based on service and best estimates of retirement ages and expected future salary and wage increases. Liabilities under these benefit plans are accrued and based on projected benefits as the employees render services necessary to earn future benefits.

p) Budget Figures (Note 18) The budget figures reported in the Consolidated Financial Statements represent the 2015 component of the Financial Plan Bylaw adopted by Council on May 4, 2015.

q) Contaminated Sites Effective January 1, 2015, the Corporation adopted the new Public Sector Accounting Standard PS3260 Contaminated Sites. The new standard can be applied retroactively or prospectively, and the Corporation has elected to apply it prospectively. Under PS3260 governments are required to accrue a liability for the costs to remediate a contaminated site. Liabilities are recognized when an environmental standard exists, contamination exceeds the standard, the government has responsibility for remediation, future economic benefits will be given up and a reasonable estimate can be made. Management has assessed its potential liabilities under the new standard including sites that are no longer in productive use and sites which the Corporation accepts responsibility. There were no such sites that had contamination in excess of an environmental standard which required remediation at this time, therefore no liability was recognized on transition as at January 1, 2015 or at December 31, 2015.

r) Comparative Figures Certain comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with the financial statement presentation adopted for the current year.

11. Employee Benefit Plans The Corporation provides employee future benefits in the form of severance benefits, compensated absences and non-vested sick leave to qualifying employees. Severance benefits are cash settlements to employees who cease employment with the Corporation after a specified period of time. The Corporation provides certain post-employment benefits to both qualifying union and exempt employees. An actuarial valuation of these benefits was performed to determine the Corporation's liability and accrued benefit obligation as at December 31, 2015.

15. Trust Funds These funds have been created to hold assets, which must be administered as directed by agreement or statute for certain beneficiaries. In accordance with Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) recommendations, trust funds are not included in the Corporation’s consolidated financial statements. Trust funds administered by the Corporation are as follows:

2015 North Delta Cemetery Trust Fund South Delta Cemetery Trust Fund Deposits from Development Agreements and other

19,152 889,773 15,571,285 16,480,210

2014 18,722 856,568 12,049,288 12,924,578

16. Commitments and Contingencies I. The Corporation, as a member of the Greater Vancouver Water District, the Greater Vancouver Sewage and Drainage District, and the Greater Vancouver Regional District, is jointly and severally liable for the net capital liabilities of these districts. II. The Corporation and its employees contribute to the Municipal Pension Plan (the Plan), a jointly trusted pension plan. The Board of Trustees, representing pension plan members and employers, is responsible for overseeing the management of the pension plan, including investment of the assets and administration of benefits. The pension plan is a multi-employer contributory pension plan. Basic pension benefits provided are defined. The plan has about 185,000 active members and approximately 80,000 retired members. Active members include approximately 37,000 contributors from local governments. The most recent valuation as at December 31, 2012 indicated an unfunded liability of $1,370 million for basic pension benefits. The next valuation will be as at December 31, 2015 with results available in later 2016. Employers participating in the Plan record their pension expense as the amount of employer contributions made during the fiscal year (defined contribution pension plan accounting). This is because the Plan records accrued liabilities and accrued assets for the Plan in aggregate, with the result that there is no consistent and reliable basis for allocating the obligation, assets and cost to the individual employers participating in the Plan. The Corporation of Delta paid $10,011,808 (2014 - 9,269,653) for employer contributions to the pension plan in fiscal 2015, while employees contributed $8,280,077 (2014 - $7,738,458) to the plan in fiscal 2015. III. In the ordinary course of business, claims are asserted or made against the Corporation, and it is currently involved in various legal actions. The outcome of these actions cannot be determined at this time. A provision has been made in the accounts for any likely unfavorable outcome of these actions. The amount of any loss in excess of the provision and insurance coverage will be recorded when determinable. IV. The Corporation insures itself through a combination of insurance policies and self-insurance. The Corporation has a funded selfappropriation insurance reserve (Note 14). Based on estimates, this appropriation reasonably provides for all outstanding claims. V. The Corporation has a contingent liability with respect to the Municipal Finance Authority of BC (MFA) Debt Reserve Fund Demand Note. As a condition of the borrowing undertaken by the Corporation, the Corporation was required to contribute to the MFA Debt Reserve through a demand note. The demand note will only be recorded as an asset and liability if a local government, under joint and several agreement of the regional district, defaults on the loan obligation. Upon this action of the default, the MFA may call the outstanding demand notes of the deficient regional district at which point the demand notes then become an asset and a liability of the associated members. Once the defaulting local government repays in full the defaulted position, the MFA will refund all called demand notes. It is generally unlikely that the funds will be demanded by the MFA, therefore the contingent liability has not been recorded in the consolidated financial statements. As at December 31, 2015 the demand notes total $588,250 (2014 - $588,250).

17. Basis of Segmented Reporting The Corporation has adopted the Public Sector Accounting Board recommendation requiring financial information to be provided on a segmented basis. Municipal services have been segmented by grouping activities that have similar service objectives (by function). Revenues that are directly related to the cost of the function have been attributed to each segment. Expenditures reported for each segment include an allocation of internal equipment charges based on departmental usage of equipment. Interest is allocated to functions based on the purpose of the specific borrowing. Municipal Services are provided by departments and have been separately disclosed as follows:

General Government General Government includes the Clerks Office, the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer, Finance, Human Resources and Corporate Planning, Legal Services and all other legislative services. The Departments within the General Government are responsible for adopting bylaws; adopting administrative policy; levying and collecting taxes; managing corporation assets; support of the Corporation's information technology. It also includes the levy for library services and ECOMM.

Protective Services The Police Department is responsible for the safety of lives and property of citizens, to preserve peace and order, to prevent crimes from occurring, to detect offenders, and to enforce the law. The Fire Department is responsible for fire suppression, fire prevention programs, training and education related to prevention.

Engineering, Public Works and Transportation The Engineering Department is responsible for the roads, transportation networks, drainage, street lighting, parking, snow removal, bridges, fleet maintenance and all related traffic services and administration.

Community Planning The Community Planning Department manages urban development businesses and residents through municipal planning and community development. It ensures quality of building construction through enforcement of building codes and standards. It facilitates development by providing approval on development plans, zoning bylaws and building permit applications.

Parks, Recreation and Culture The Parks, Recreation and Culture Department provides public service that contributes to neighbourhood development and sustainability through the provision of recreational and leisure programs. It provides services that contribute to the healthy living of the community through partnerships, promotion, and preventative education.

Environmental Health and Solid Waste The Environmental Health section is responsible for the protection and enhancement of the environmental values of the municipality through education, enforcement, bylaw development, complaint investigation and response to incidents. The solid waste program is responsible for garbage collection and recycling.

Utilities The Utilities include the water and sewer functions. The water program provides drinking water to the citizens of the municipality through its network of pipes; the sewer program is responsible for collecting disposal and transporting of sewage to the regional disposal facilities.
