Investigation results

For each complaint it receives, the Québec Ombudsman determines whether the complaint is admissible, and if it is, whether it will investigate. When the investigation is over, and the finding is that error or injustice occurred, we send our recommendations to the competent authorities so that the problem or situation brought to light can be corrected. Here are some real-life cases that show how our investigations were carried out and the resulting recommendations.
