Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s former director of finance accused of misappropriation of $2.365 million

Richmond Hill (July 26, 2019) – Ontario Minor Hockey Association’s former director of finance, Jennifer Robinson is accused of misappropriation of $2.365 million and scheduled to appear in a Newmarket court July, 25, YorkRegion.com reports.

Jennifer Robinson stole the amount between June 1, 2018, and November 30, 2018. Thereupon, she was dismissed in December 2018. OMHA’s accounting firm MNP LLP filed an audit report that unveiled the former employee’s misuse of OMHA’s online banking platform. She unjustifiably transferred a total of $2,365,934 in cash to personal credit cards.

On June 6, 2019, OMHA declares that as soon as they found out about the missing funds, they got the York Regional Police involved, YorkRegion.com informs. The OMHA provided the police with a final report from forensic auditors, but the circumstances of the theft are part of the investigation and therefore cannot be revealed.
