Public Accounts of Canada
The Public Accounts of Canada is the report of the Government of Canada prepared annually by the Receiver General, as required by section 64 of the Financial Administration Act. It covers the fiscal year of the Government, which ends on March 31.
The information contained in the report originates from two sources of data:
- the summarized financial transactions presented in the Accounts of Canada, maintained by the Receiver General; and
- the detailed records, maintained by departments and agencies.
Each department and agency is responsible for reconciling its accounts to the control accounts of the Receiver General, and for maintaining detailed records of the transactions in their accounts.

- The Public Accounts of Canada for previous years (starting with 1995) are available in a PDF format and in HTML format since 2012 from the Library and Archives Canada.
The Receiver General has published twenty–three datasets for the Public Accounts of Canada to the Government of Canada's Open Data Portal.
