2007 spending controversy[edit]

The Ministry of Citizenship of Immigration (Ontario) was accused of using immigrant aid money as a slush fund by directing it to groups with strong Liberal-ties.[1][2] The Ontario Auditor General probed $32 million of spending over a 2-year period and found no direct evidence of money flowing due to political ties, but that political ties did exist and there were various governance deficiencies.[3] (see also, Economic impact of immigration to Canada#Government finances)
