Sudden death of Auditor General of Canada

It is with great sadness that the Office of the Auditor General of Canada has announced the death of the Auditor General Michael Ferguson on 2 February 2019.

Mr. Ferguson was appointed Auditor General of Canada on 28 November 2011.

INTOSAI lost a personality who, over many years, essentially shaped, influenced and strengthened government audit.

Mr. Ferguson will be remembered by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him as a humble, compassionate and thoughtful man. He cared deeply about conducting audits that brought value to the public service, always for the greater good of citizens. In the last years he was also especially engaged in the implementation of the UN SDGs within the frame of INTOSAI.

It is without any doubt that his work and his great expertise have influenced the international audit community and will continue to leave an imprint on INTOSAI.
