Which wrongdoings is the Québec Ombudsman not mandated to handle?


A few examples:

  • A wrongdoing brought before a court or tribunal;
  • A wrongdoing by an elected municipal official consisting of a breach of the code of ethics and professional conduct;
  • A wrongdoing committed within a private company and that does not involve a public body;
  • A breach of the rules for calls for tenders for public contracts.

Disclosures made for purely personal purposes are not admissible, for example, if a manager has behaved inappropriately towards you only. For other examples, see the What is a wrongdoing? section.
