Elyk, Kerri

Senior Auditor, Emergency Management and Programs Branch (EMPB) Public Safety Canada

Kerri began her internal audit career as a summer student while obtaining her B.Comm (Hons.) from the Asper School of Business at the University of Manitoba and just couldn’t leave the profession. She spent over seven years in progressive internal audit roles in the private sector, including at Agricore United and Great-West Life. In 2011, she became a federal public servant when she joined the small audit team at the Canadian Grain Commission, helping the team develop data analytics capabilities and establish electronic working papers amongst other things. Besides playing with data, Kerri’s other internal audit interests include risk assessment techniques, ethical issues, and quality assessment. Kerri spent many years serving on the IIA Winnipeg Chapter’s board of directors, including roles as the vice presidents of Member Services and Education. She is also an active member of the Winnipeg ISACA chapter. Currently, Kerri is bringing the internal audit perspective to the external audit role of Senior Auditor, Program Audit Unit in the Emergency Management and Programs Branch of Public Safety Canada. Off the clock, Kerri spends her time singing in choir, RV’ing (the glamourous kind), driving her ATV “Priscilla”, working on her new cottage, and of course, sitting in arenas across Southeastern Manitoba watching her two boys play hockey.
