"This year, yet again, individuals and families saw respect for their rights compromised and experienced major distress as a result of failings by government departments and agencies," said the Ombudsperson.


Examples of failings by government departments and agencies

The percentage of substantiated complaints about government departments and agencies was 22.2%. The three main reasons for substantiated complaints were lengthy wait times (45.9%), failure to respect citizens' rights (19.4%) and failings with a financial impact (17.9%). In 2018-2019, the Québec Ombudsman intervened regarding 53 of the 79 government departments and agencies within its jurisdiction.
