    Frequently Asked Questions::When should I contact the Ombudsman?

    When should I contact the Ombudsman?

    It's best to think of the Ombudsman as a last resort. We will try to help when other approaches have failed. If you have a complaint, first calmly discuss it with the person involved. In many cases, this action can resolve the problem or help you better understand the issue.

    When you have made a reasonable effort to resolve your problem through normal processes and it still is not resolved then contact the Ombudsman.
