The C.E.O of the Atira Women's Resource Society is stepping down after an audit commissioned by the B.C. government found a conflict of interest related to her marriage to the former head of Crown social housing provider B.C. Housing.

The society says Janice Abbott is resigning immediately.

That's after the board of the society stood by Abbott last week in the fallout from release of the report that uncovered efforts to cover up violations of B.C. Housing's conflict of interest rules.

A statement from the society says the focus for its board is working with the province and restoring the public's confidence in Atira's integrity, mission, purpose and values.
