Ontario government recovered none of $210 million paid to ineligible recipients in COVID-19 benefits: AG report

Ontario Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk said on Wednesday that her office’s audit of the government’s COVID-19 benefit programs found that eligibility controls were poorly handled or missing, which resulted in the government paying $210 million to ineligible recipients under one of the programs, money which the government has not yet recovered nor plans to do so, according to Lysyk.
