Policies and Procedures

Standards of Service in Complaint Handling

Ombudsman Toronto:
 
  • returns phone calls within one business day
  • acknowledges e-mails within two business days
  • acknowledges regular mail within three business days 
All complainants have the opportunity to provide information to support their complaint. We consider every complaint on its own merits. 

Complainants are kept informed about what is happening with their complaint, and why. They are informed about the outcome of our Enquiry or Investigation into their complaint.

Equitable Service Standards

Ombudsman Toronto is committed to providing equitable access to its services. That means we take into account the needs, location and circumstance of every individual who works with us.
