File a complaint on the quality of services

We are committed to providing you with quality services and meeting your needs. Nevertheless, if you wish to express dissatisfaction with our services, you can file a complaint.

What is the difference between a complaint, a report of a wrongdoing and a comment?

  • The complaint is used to inform us of your dissatisfaction with our services. It is a process that requires follow-up or intervention on our part.
  • Reporting wrongdoing refers to non-compliance with laws and regulations. If you wish to report wrongdoing, go to the Report wrongdoing (a person or situation) webpage. This can be done anonymously.
  • At any time, you can also contact us to express your comments or to obtain a follow-up on your file.

Procedure to file a complaint

The role of the Bureau des plaintes et de la qualité des services (the office of complaints and quality of services) is to:

  • Receive and process your complaints about our services in an independent and confidential manner
  • Make recommendations to improve our services

At any time, we encourage you to contact a client service agent before filing a complaint. Most situations can be resolved at this stage. If you have already contacted us and you are not satisfied with the proposed solutions, you can file a complaint, for yourself or for someone whom you are representing.

Please be respectful when communicating with us. Aggressive, hateful or offensive language will not be tolerated. In such a situation, we reserve the right to end communication.
