More changes at Nunavik’s regional health board
Larry Watt no longer acting executive director
Larry Watt will leave his role as acting executive director at the Nunavik Regional Board of Health and Social Services, the health board said in Feb. 28 news release.
Watt had been filling in for executive director Jeannie May since she began maternity leave last November.
Watt was nominated for the position at the health board’s fall 2011 annual general meeting, where it was announced he would also continue to manage the board’s out-of-region services during May’s absence.
The health board news release does not explain Watt’s departure, but said he will continue on as director of out-of-region services.
As per its by-laws and procedures, the position of executive director will be posted in order to fill the position in the interim.
Until the position is filled, the health board’s assistant to the executive director, Gilles Boulet, will take over.
In the meantime, the health board of directors says it is reviewing a report looking into alleged misuse of its finances.
May, alongside Alasie Arngak, the outgoing chairperson of its board of directors, may face disciplinary action after evidence of alleged credit card misuse came to light during a 2011 review of the health board’s finances.
Earlier this month, health board members received a preliminary report from the auditing firm BDO Canada LLP, which is being reviewed.
