Convoy Protest Audit

Background

On February 7, 2022, City Council carried motion NO 69/13 requesting the City Manager to commission an independent evaluation of the response to the occupation of the City of Ottawa with a view to better overall governmental agencies response to planning, coordination, communications, sharing of resources including deployment and report back by May 2022 for consideration by all levels of government prior to Canada Day.

On March 28, 2022, the Ottawa Police Services Board approved a motion requesting the Auditor General to lead a review of the Ottawa Police Service’s overall response to the convoy protest. 

On March 29, 2022, the City Manager provided a written request to the Auditor General requesting that the Office of the Auditor General consider undertaking the independent evaluation of the City’s response to the Convoy Protest as directed on February 7, 2022.  

The Auditor General accepted both requests on March 29, 2022.
