In the lead up, the office is currently scheduling in-person, confidential and free appointments. To make a booking, call 1-800-567-3247.

"Meeting with us face to face is a great way for you to raise your concerns about the fairness of government services you have received," said Ombudsperson Jay Chalke.

The office receives between 7,000 and 8,000 complaints a year.

"We hear a wide range of complaints from people experiencing lengthy delays getting service, individuals having trouble getting benefits they are entitled to or others who may feel decisions impacting them are unfair," said Chalke.
