If you are a member of the Defence community and you feel you have been treated unfairly, or would like information about how to resolve a problem, the Ombudsman's Office is here to help.

The Office of the Ombudsman serves as an office of last resort. Members of the Defence community must first use existing internal review mechanisms (e.g., the Canadian Forces grievance process, the public service grievance and complaints process, etc.) before the office can initiate a review or begin an investigation.
