Finance & Administration
The Kenora Association for Community Living Finance and Administration team are the stewards of the funding for all the services KACL provides. Unlike any other program, our overall purpose serves and affects the organization as a whole. Ultimately, we are accountable for ensuring that KACL is in compliance with all applicable legal requirements, which, in turn, accords programs the latitude they need to support people to the best of their abilities.
We are committed to the ongoing and exponential success of the organization, which we achieve through strict adherence to the KACL's ethical commitments that are laid out in the Letters Patent, Mission Statement, and Service Delivery Principles. Because the finances of the agency are entrusted to us, we are committed to upholding practices that contribute to and ensure that KACL's trustworthiness, professionalism, respectfulness, and transparency are widespread. We are proud of the work that we do and we take pride in working for an organization that strives to make a positive difference in our community.
Fiscal responsibility is one of our team's primary roles. In addition to consistently maintaining regular pay periods and paydays for staff, we satisfy fiduciary duties to various principals, like the KACL board of directors, the Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services, which is the government body that provides the bulk of our funding, and, ultimately, our primary stakeholder, Ontario taxpayers. We have a substantial responsibility to ensure that the tax dollars we receive to support our programs are spent wisely and efficiently.
Most importantly, the Finance and Administration team have a responsibility to the people KACL supports. Applying our knowledge to do our jobs well, and providing as-required support and structure, ensures maximum efficiency in KACL'S overall service delivery. We participate with the KACL management team, and contribute to the identification of organizational objectives and the creation of appropriate strategies, to achieve organizational goals.
