NNC - Compliance Reports for 2020-2021
Under the Nutrition North Canada (NNC) program, Crown Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) monitors retailers' and suppliers' compliance of the terms and conditions outlined in the funding agreements between the recipients and the Department.
Using a risk-based analysis tool, CIRNAC selected the following retailers and suppliers registered with the NNC program to undergo compliance assessments for the 2020 to 2021 fiscal year.

For 2020 to 2021, the compliance assessments were conducted by two independent third-party corporations, Spearhead Management Canada Limited and Samson & Associés CPA/Consultation Inc.
The purpose of the compliance assessments was to provide information on, and to evaluate the following criteria:
- Whether the subsidy claimed for reimbursement relates to the type and nature of eligible cost requirements of the program,
- whether the program visibility requirements are being met and that the subsidy is transparent to consumers.
- the Recipient's reporting and claiming systems and procedures; and,
- whether the Recipient’s processes relate to the supply chain practices; passing on the full value of the subsidy and related profit margin practices; and sales to ineligible clients.
More information on the purpose and objectives of these assessments can be found under compliance reviews.
Each compliance assessment provides recommendations to registered retailers and suppliers. Once completed, NNC notifies retailers and suppliers of the recommendations in a Compliance Management Letter, sent by a senior staff member at the program. Retailers and suppliers are required to provide a written response to the management letter within 30 days with an action plan outlining how the organization will address the recommendations.
