CWF completed the 2015-2016 fiscal year with a surplus of $998,000, and, once again, received an unqualified audit. CWF efficiency ratios were well within guidelines of the Canada Revenue Agency, and CWF was also recognized by the Financial Post as one of the Top 25 charitable organizations in Canada for the second year in a row.
The surplus from this year will be invested in future conservation programs. Investments in charitable programs were $11.9 million. This investment was used to strengthen programming in areas of education, habitat stewardship, endangered species, freshwater/marine, and boreal forest conservation.
