Do you have a complaint?

We are always striving to improve our service quality, and the comments, suggestions and complaints we receive are important to us.

If you are dissatisfied with the service you receive, we ask you, first, to inform the person with whom you dealt. Most problems can be solved by this initial contact.

If you are still dissatisfied, you may then contact the Direction du bureau du sous-ministre et du secrétariat, in writing or by telephone. This is the department responsible for managing complaints. It gives citizens an opportunity to be heard by a neutral, impartial authority.

  • Your name and contact information.
  • A detailed description of the situation.
  • The outcome of any steps you have taken.
