To the Board of Directors of Canadian Patient Safety Institute
The accompanying summarized financial statements, which comprise the summarized statement of financial position as at March 31, 2017, and the summarized statement of operations for the year then ended, and related notes, are derived from the complete set of audited annual financial statements of Canadian Patient Safety Institute for the year ended March 31, 2017. We expressed an unmodified audit opinion on those financial statements in our report dated June 16, 2017. Those financial statements, and the summarized financial statements, do not reflect the effects of events that occurred subsequent to the date of our report on those financial statements.
The summarized financial statements do not contain all the disclosures required by Canadian accounting standards for not-for-profit organizations. Reading the summarized financial statements, therefore, is not a substitute for reading the audited financial statements of Canadian Patient Safety Institute.

Basis of presentation
The summarized 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 flow and certain note disclosures have been omitted. Reading the summarized 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, 2017, 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 2016-2017 fiscal year was the fourth under a five-year contribution agreement with the Government of Canada that provides for total contributions of up to $38,160,000 for the 2014-2018 fiscal years. During the year, the Institute received payments of $7,600,000 (2016 - $7,600,000) from the Government of Canada.
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 10% of the current year’s funding can be carried forward to the following year. Of the $7,600,000 in funds received in the year plus the $542,579 carried forward from the 2015-2016 year, the Institute recognized $7,649,963 as revenue, and is holding the remaining $492,616 as deferred revenue to be applied in the 2017-2018 fiscal year. The Institute’s excess of revenue over eligible expenses for Government of Canada purposes was $40,000, as reflected in the increase in net assets other than those invested in capital.

The Institute’s ability to continue operations depends on the Government of Canada providing on-going contributions in accordance with the contribution agreement.
