A new Québec Ombudsman

On March 27, 2022, the 8th Québec Ombudsman, Marc-André Dowd, took office. Mr. Dowd, who succeeds Marie Rinfret, is very familiar with the Québec Ombudsman’s mission—he was the Deputy Ombudsman for Prevention and Innovation from 2010 to 2015.

"I’m very pleased to be back at the Québec Ombudsman, an institution in which I believe deeply. I am joining a team determined to ensure that the rights of each and every one of us are upheld."

– Marc-André Dowd
