​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Internal Audit is guided by a philosophy of adding value to improve the operations of the City of Brampton. It assists the City in accomplishing its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of the City’s governance, risk management, and internal control.

The City first created an int​ernal audit function in May of 1987, and since then the Internal Audit division has grown and adapted to the needs of a thriving municipality. The Division provides the City of Brampton’s Senior Management with the necessary recommendations to maintain the highest standards of stewardship and due diligence over corporate processes and public funds.

Internal Audit reports functionally to the Audit Committee and administratively to the Chief Administrative Officer. The Audit Committee (a Committee of Council) was established to enable members of Council to further enhance oversight capabilities and stewardship responsibilities. The division’s reports are presented to the Audit Committee quarterly. All reports can be found with the Audit Committee agendas for each meeting.​
