The former director of nursing operations at the Lac Seul Health Centre has been charged with fraud.

Lac Seul police say they received a complaint from Lac Seul First Nation northeast of Dryden, Ont., in May about unauthorized spending involving a health centre employee.

The alleged fraudulent activities occurred between 2019 and 2021 and involved what police said was a “substantial” amount of money.

Investigation led police to arrest a 54-year old Sioux Lookout woman on Aug. 20.

She’s been charged with fraud over $5,000 and criminal breach of trust.

The accused has been release from custody and is due in Lac Seul court on Sept. 29.
