Former Alberta bureaucrat Lloyd Carr now faces fraud charges in Manitoba in relation to his employment with a regional health authority in Flin Flon.
On Wednesday, Manitoba RCMP announced Carr, 46, has been charged with two counts of uttering a forged document and one count of fraud.
Manitoba RCMP allege the University of Calgary social work degree that Carr used to get the position as a mental health clinician with the NOR-MAN Regional Health Authority was forged. They also allege Carr forged a doctor's note.
"The employee had applied for sick leave from the NOR-MAN Regional Health Authority and provided a forged doctors note indicating that he had cancer, while, in fact, the employee was in the province of Alberta to answer to fraud and forgery charges in that province," said Const. Miles Hiebert.
Carr, the former executive director of the tobacco-reduction program at the Alberta Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission, was sentenced in April to 3½ years in prison for defrauding the Alberta government of $634,000.
He pleaded guilty to one count of fraud over $5,000 in February.
While on bail, he allegedly told authorities in Alberta he was working as a house painter in Swan River, Man., when he had actually been working in Flin Flon for the health authority.
Carr is scheduled to appear in Flin Flon provincial court on Sept. 1.
