Management has assessed the risk that the consolidated financial statements may be materially misstated as a result of fraud, and has determined such risk to be low. The Board of Directors of Ornge is responsible for ensuring that management fulfills its responsibilities for financial reporting and internal controls. The Board generally meets periodically with management to satisfy itself that such responsibilities have been fulfilled.
