Manitoba's Aiyawyn Corporation gets knuckles wrapped by Auditor

First there was Hydra House and now there is the Aiyawyn Corporation. Another scathing report from Manitoba's Auditor has shown "the risks to public monies and public services that can occur when external service providers, whether they are for-profit or not-for-profit, operate with inadequate board governance, a lack of policies and procedures, and poor management practices combined with insufficient oversight by the province."

By way of background, the Aiyawin Corporation was a not-for-profit native housing organization that received funding from both the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and the Manitoba Housing and Renewal Corporation (MHRC) under the
Urban Native Non-Profit Housing Program.


Aiyawin Corporation was established in 1983 and receives nearly $2 million a year in public funds.
