OMBUDSMAN ONTARIO PROGRAM - VOTE 2301

The Ombudsman is an independent Officer of the Legislature, appointed under the Ombudsman Act and charged with investigating complaints about the administration of Provincial government organizations including maladministration and unfairness in the provision of government services to the public. The Ombudsman investigates individual complaints as well as serious, high profile, systemic issues, which are directly relevant to large numbers of Ontario citizens. The Ombudsman reports annually to the Legislature on the operations of the Office and also issues reports on investigations, which have a high public interest component. At the conclusion of an investigation, the Ombudsman may make recommendations, including that any government policy or practice should be altered to remedy any unfair treatment, which was uncovered.
