    • Financial Statements of CANADIAN GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND Year ended December 31, 1999
    • AUDITORS' REPORT TO THE DIRECTORS We have audited the statement of financial position of Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind as at December 31, 1999 and the statements of operations, changes in net assets and cash flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the organization's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. Except as explained in the following paragraph, we conducted our audit in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform an audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. The organization derives revenue, the completeness of which is not susceptible of satisfactory audit verification, except for testamentary bequests, Patron's account and investment income. Accordingly, our verification of revenues other than testamentary bequests, Patron's account income and investment income was limited to the amounts recorded in the records of the organization and we were not able to determine whether any adjustments might be necessary to revenue, excess of revenue over expense, assets and net assets. In our opinion, except for the effect of adjustments, if any, which we might have determined to be necessary had we been able to satisfy ourselves concerning the completeness of the revenue referred to in the preceding paragraph, these financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the organization as at December 31, 1999 and results of its operations and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles. As required by the Canada Corporations Act we report that, in our opinion, these principles have been applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

Significant accounting policies (continued): (e) Deferred capital contributions: Contributions restricted for the purpose of capital assets are deferred and amortized into revenue on a straight-line basis, at a rate corresponding with the amortization rate for the related capital assets. (f) Investments: Investments are recorded at cost. (g) Restricted assets: Restricted assets represent amounts donated by a Patron for apprentice education. (h) Endowment: Net assets restricted for endowment purposes are subject to externally imposed restrictions stipulating that the resources must be maintained permanently. Investment income on this amount is unrestricted. (i) Use of estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Financial instruments: For certain of the Organization's financial instruments, including short-term investments, amounts receivable, accrued investment income and accounts payable and accrued liabilities, the carrying amounts approximate fair value due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. The fair value of the pledges receivable could not be determined as there is no market for this financial asset. The carrying amount and fair value of the long-term investments are as follows: 1999 1998 Carrying Fair Carrying Fair amount value amount value Savings bonds - unrestricted $ 460,895 $ 467,240 $ 250,000 $ 255,029 5.

    • CANADIAN GUIDE DOGS FOR THE BLIND Notes to Financial Statements, page 5 Year ended December 31, 1999 6. Uncertainty due to the Year 2000 Issue: The Year 2000 Issue arises because many computerized systems use two digits rather than four to identify a year. Date-sensitive systems may recognize the year 2000 as 1900 or some other date, resulting in errors when information using year 2000 dates is processed. In addition, similar problems may arise in some systems which use certain dates in 1999 to represent something other than a date. Although the change in date has occurred, it is not possible to conclude that all aspects of the Year 2000 Issue that may affect the Organization, including those related to customers, suppliers, or other third parties, have been fully resolved. 7. Comparative figures: Certain 1998 comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with the financial statement presentation adopted for 1999.
