To the Board of Directors of Canadian Patient Safety Institute
The summary financial statements, which comprise the summary statement of financial position as at March 31, 2019, and the summary statement of operations for the year then ended, and related notes, are derived from the audited financial statements of Canadian Patient Safety Institute (the “Institute”) for the year ended March 31, 2019.
In our opinion, the accompanying summary financial statements are a fair summary of the audited financial statements, in accordance with the criteria disclosed in Note 2 to the summary financial statements.
Summary Financial Statements
The summary financial statements do not contain all the disclosures required by Canadian accounting standards for not-for-profit organizations. Reading the summary financial statements and the auditor's report thereon, therefore, is not a substitute for reading the Institute’s audited financial statements and the auditor's report thereon.
The summary financial statements and the audited financial statements do not reflect the effects of events that occurred subsequent to the date of our report on the audited financial statements.

Purpose of organization
The Canadian Patient Safety Institute (the “Institute”) was incorporated under the Canada Corporations Act on December 5, 2003, and effective October 1, 2014, continued under the Canada Not-for-Profit Corporations Act. The purpose of the Institute is to address patient safety issues by strengthening system coordination, promoting best practices and providing advice to governments and stakeholders that places patient safety in the broader context of quality improvement in healthcare.

Basis of presentation
The summary financial statements do not contain all the disclosures required by Canadian accounting standards for not-for-profit organizations. The statement of changes in net assets, statement of cash flows and certain note disclosures have been omitted. Reading the summary financial statements, therefore, is not a substitute for reading the audited financial statements of the Institute.
The Institute is committed to full accountability and transparency in all we do. Our audited financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2019, including all disclosures required by Canadian accounting standards for not-for-profit organizations, can be found on the Institute’s website at www.patientsafetyinstitute.ca.
Contributions from Government of Canada
Funding received for the 2018-19 fiscal year was the sixth year of funding under a contribution agreement with the Government of Canada. The contribution agreement initially provided for total contributions of up to $38,160,000 for the 2014-2018 fiscal years. In the 2017-18 fiscal year, the agreement was extended for one year, and in the 2018-19 fiscal year, it was extended again to provide an additional $7,600,000 for the 2019-20 fiscal year, to the end of March 2020. The Institute received payments of $7,600,000 (2018 - $7,600,000) from the Government of Canada during the year.
The contribution agreement specifies that the funding must be used for the eligible expenditures under the contribution agreement or returned to the Government of Canada. Eligible expenditures are determined on a capital expenditure basis. Where funds received in a given year are not fully expended on eligible expenditures, the agreement permits that up to 15% (2018 - 10%) of the current year’s funding can be carried forward to the following year, up until the final year of the contribution agreement. Of the $7,600,000 in funds received in the year plus the $579,272 carried forward from the prior 2017-18 year, the Institute recognized $7,647,778 as revenue, and is holding the remaining $531,494 as deferred revenue to be applied in the 2019-20 fiscal year. The Institute’s excess of revenue over eligible expenditures for Government of Canada purposes was $20,000 (2018 - $35,000), as reflected in the increase in net assets other than those invested in capital.
|Adjustment to capital expenditure basis:|
|Deficiency of revenue over expenses||(5,405)||(22,261)|
|Add back depreciation||141,855||146,134|
|Deduct capital expenditures||(49,153)||(21,576)|
|Reverse amortization of deferred lease allowance||(67,297)||(67,297)|
|Add proceeds on disposal of capital assets||190||762|
|Reverse gain on disposal of capital assets||(190)||(762)|
|Net result reported to Government of Canada||20,000||35,000|
The Institute’s ability to continue operations depends on the Government of Canada providing on-going contributions in accordance with the contribution agreement.
