The provincial government is seeking $3.4 million from an Edmonton seniors
home after the auditor general’s office found the home had not appropriately spent
its government funding.
Pearl Villa Homes, had been given a multimillion-dollar government contract, with
most of the money intended to go to pay employees providing client care. But over
three years, one-fifth of that money “either should have been spent on direct care
or returned to the province, and it was not,” Auditor General Fred Dunn said. He
said the government should demand such private service providers adequately
report how they’ve spent government money.
