Office of the Ombudsperson – BC
Primary Business Category
We assist with and investigate complaints from members of the public about the administration of government programs and services. Whether it’s a delay in receiving service or a disagreement with a decision made, we impartially listen and work to find fair solutions to problems that come to us. Under BC’s new whistleblower protection law (the Public Interest Disclosure Act) we also investigate allegations of wrongdoing and reprisal brought forward by current and former provincial government employees. Finally, we share our expertise in promoting fairness through educational workshops, webinars, guides and other resources with public sector organizations. Our services are free and confidential.
