Federal ombuds

Also known as ombudspersons or ombudsmen, ombuds are confidential, impartial and independent conflict management professionals who work to resolve complaints with a federal government organization. While each ombuds' office has a different mandate, we all have one thing in common: we advocate for the principles of fairness and equity.

There are many federal ombuds' offices and similar organizations available to help if you believe you have been treated unfairly. We are eager to assist you, so don’t hesitate to contact us and find out more about what we do.
