I have noted over the years that there have been allegations of abuse with reference to Revera in both Alberta and Ontario. I also know that the federal government provides money to the provincial government in health care disbursements. Then the health care money is further disbursed to continuing care providers in the public and private sector. As a result, it seems to me at least that the federal government is indirectly funding Revera which is allegedly not fulfilling its requirements to the public in terms of public health and safety. Please indicate to me whether this flow of money is an issue and whether such a flow of cash represents conflict of interest problems.

Just now
#ReveraAbuseDeath--we get a lot of information from the federal government that tells us that they care about seniors and yet how are we to reconcile this information that the federal government employees have a public sector pension plan that is invested in a company that families are saying caused harm and death to their loved ones?
Why is the federal government itself invested in a continuing care company that gets money from provincial governments that originally come from the federal government? Does no one except me see some conflict of interest in this set up?
And what about the ethical obligations of the federal government in terms of its duty to the health and safety of citizens when it's property is being alleged to cause harm to citizens?
Where is the ethical line in the sand here?
I write to find out.

Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissione
Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner
Parliament of Canada
66 Slater Street, 22nd Floor
Ottawa, Ontario



Dear Ms. Dawson,

I am writing abour Revera. 
This is a company that is wholly owned by the federal government through the pension plan it operates for the federal Public Service, the Canadian Forces and the RCMP pension funds.

My understanding of the set up is this. The Federal government has a treasury board with appointments made by the ruling political party This treasury board then appoints a group of folks to a board called the Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSPIB).

I have a link at the end of this e-mail to show the subsidiaries held  by the PSPIB at 100% ownership. One of these companies is Revera.

I have concerns about the ownership of Revera by the federal government of Canada which ultimately is manager and / or owner of the pension funds. 

Can you answer the following questions for me?

1) Is the use of federal money going ultimately to a company that the federal government owns a conflict of interest? 

Just looking at this set up raises several conflict of interest and ethical issues in my mind.
First of all is it not problematic that federal money is ultimately going to a company it owns?
Second of all when problems develop what is the job of the federal government when these problems arise?   The federal government has a duty to the public with reference to public health and safety.  Yet in this case, there seems to be no interest in fulfilling its duty. Why would the duty to the public be absent just because the federal government has handed over a business interest to a third party?

 I have noted over the years that there have been allegations of abuse with reference to Revera in both Alberta and Ontario.  I also know that the federal government provides money to the provincial government in health care disbursements. Then the health care money is further disbursed to continuing care providers in the public and private sector. As a result, it seems to me at least that the federal government is indirectly funding Revera which is allegedly not fulfilling its requirements to the public in terms of public health and safety. Please indicate to me whether this flow of money is an issue and whether such a flow of cash represents conflict of interest problems. 

2) Since Revera has been involved in various care problems that families have raised that have not resulted in satisfactory resolution resulting in some families suing Revera either independently or in the form of a recent class action lawsuit what are the ethical obligations of the federal government in these care problems?

If the federal government owns the property that is alleged to cause care problems to the public---doesn't the federal government have an ethical obligation to resolve these care issues without the prod of lawsuits? Why is the federal government allowing it's property to operate in the ways specified by the plaintiffs in lawsuits without any action taken other than public spin presentations of the sort that are not convincing to the public? What are the obligations of the federal government with reference to Revera and public health/safety?

3) What are the ethical and even conflict of interest issues in the provincial governments' role in these sorts of business transactions that may also impact their oversight ability? 

For example what if there are care concerns raised by citizens to the provincial governments? How can families be sure that these care concerns are dealt with reasonably when there is are preexisting money relationships involved as in this case with Revera being funded by money from the federal government? 

Is there not a need for an independent agency investigating the care concerns raised by families-- rather than the ones currently doing the investigations within the provincial governments? In other words, the Protection for Persons for Care Office is in the Ministry of Alberta Health  rather than being an arms length body that is independent of both the provincial and federal governments. As such, in my opinion, it is not as effective as an independent of government agency would be in such matters. 


4) What is the role of your office in such problematic set ups?  If your office does not investigate such set ups that seem rather poor in my opinion--where do I go to ask these questions and get answers?

In my opinion, the federal government should do its job with reference to Revera since it owns this company. I have already written to Revera in the past to ask the question of why public dollars from pension plans are invested in a company which has been dogged with allegations of abuse and no answers were provided,   Could it be that the folks in the pension plan are and in the federal government itself--- thinking of profits over people? 


Sincerely,,
Julie Ali
