Crean said she is committed to making sure that residents have equitable access to the Office’s services, noting that she intends to get to all wards over the next couple of years.
Meetings are as follows:

The Office of the Ombudsman is committed to being responsive and accountable to the City of Toronto and its residents. It is responsible for reviewing public complaints about administrative unfairness and making recommendations to City Council to improve service.
