#18 - Partnering for Accountability with Senator Ratna Omidvar

The Open Canada Podcast

07-02-2023 • 27 mins

Ruth speaks with a Canadian Senator looking closely at issues of ethics and accountability.

Senator Ratna Omidvar recently sponsored Bill S-222, the Effective and Accountable Charities Act, which aims to improve the nonprofit sector's “resource accountability", as well as the Frozen Assets Repurposing Act which proposes to stem the tide of corruption by ensuring Canada can repurpose stolen or otherwise misappropriated funds. Sen. Omidvar hopes these new resources could, to touch upon another personal interest, support the integration and settlement of displaced peoples.
