What our employees have to say
A rigorous, involved and human-centred team that really wants to be at the serve of people. Making a difference means being able to act to prevent collective harm and, in that way, improve public services for all of Québec society.
The atmosphere on the job and the team spirit are such that, every morning, I feel like I’m not even going to work—I’m part of a common mission with people who share my values.
We’re a safe gateway for all whistleblowers. I have the good fortune to participate in investigations with a multidisciplinary team and to be involved in improving public integrity in Québec.
Helping people is what motivates me. I do my best to make our services approachable by using clear language. I try to create a climate of trust and respect.
I like the variety involved. Every situation requires that I question what I know, that I do research, and that I take the time to understand what the people who come to us are going through.
When I started working at the Québec Ombudsman in 2015, I fell in love with the institution, its mission and the people who work here. I still feel excited about it today.
