An audit of Winnipeg real-estate transactions is expected to be tabled on Wednesday, July 2, the day following the Canada Day holiday.

In 2012, city council ordered up an audit of major Winnipeg real-estate transactions conducted over the previous five years.

The ensuing audit is expected to examine the Parker land swap, the sale of the Winnipeg Square Parkade and the purchase of the Canada Post building, all initiated in 2009, among other transactions.

Councillors were ‎told Wednesday the audit will be tabled on July 2, following a morning closed-door seminar.

A special meeting of city council has been called for July 3.

The city is expected to formalize this announcement today.
