TO: CMCA-member Publishers and Circulation Managers
FROM: Katrina L. Santiago, Program Manager
Over the past year, there have been a number of changes to the list of circulation auditors contracted by the Canadian Media Circulation Audit (CMCA) program, as well as procedures surrounding payment of auditor fees.
CMCA rules, which remain unchanged, state that:
ÔÇó Initial Reports must be audited by a CMCA-contracted auditor;
ÔÇó Annual Reports must be audited by a CMCA-contracted auditor, or in the case of community newspapers, an independent chartered accountant (CA designation) of their choosing.
Since January 1, 2009, CMCA has contracted Bingyan (Yan) Gong of TNY Consulting Inc. as the CMCA auditor. At present, there are no other authorized contractors.
Submit all reports to be audited by the CMCA auditor, along with the appropriate auditor fee, to the CMCA office at 890 Yonge St., Suite 200, Toronto, ON, M4W 3P4.
