What we do

As BC’s independent voice for fairness and accountability, we work to make sure public sector organizations are treating people fairly and following the rules. We listen to and investigate complaints about local and provincial public sector organizations as well as investigate reports of serious wrongdoing in the provincial government.

Our work improves public services for all British Columbians.

Our services are free, confidential and available in multiple languages.

 

Our Indigenous Services

The BC Ombudsperson is advancing a decolonial approach in our work with Indigenous Peoples. We are committed to building and sustaining ongoing relationships rooted in respect, reciprocity and responsibility.
