Ombudsman generally deal with complaints from people who believe they have been treated unfairly by agencies operating under provincial legislation. This includes government agencies and services.
They do not handle complaints against lawyers, the courts or justice matters.
The Ombudsman can investigate to determine if the public body is being fair to the people it serves.
