Can the Québec Ombudsman have an administrative tribunal decision overturned?


No. The Québec Ombudsman cannot act to have a decision by a tribunal amended or overturned. That is why it is very important for you contact the Québec Ombudsman BEFORE going to the administrative tribunals and agencies listed below: 

  • Commission d’accès à l’information; 
  • Conseil de la justice administrative;  
  • Conseil de la magistrature; 
  • Directeur des poursuites criminelles et pénales; 
  • Tribunal administratif du logement; 
  • Tribunal administratif du Québec; 
  • Tribunal administratif du travail. 

However, we have the authority to handle complaints about the administrative functions (service quality, wait times, etc.) of these tribunals. For any questions on this subject, feel free to contact us.
