Anita Dunkers, 55, the former bookkeeper for the charity, is alleged by the Crown to have written 247 fraudulent cheques between January 2008 and January 2010.
Dunkers pleaded not guilty and is set to continue with her trial before B.C. Supreme Court Justice Geoffrey Gaul for four more days next year.
Capital Families closed in the spring of 2011 after providing child, youth and family programs for 34 years with a budget that had risen to $1 million, up to 25 employees and sizable contracts with the B.C. Ministry for Children and Family Development.
After an attempt to terminate her soon after she was hired, Dunkers resigned Jan. 8, 2010.
