Do I have to contact the officer responsible for dealing with disclosures within the public body concerned before contacting the Québec Ombudsman?

No. If you are a member of the personnel of the public body concerned (the staff of childcare centres, subsidized day care centres and municipal bodies are not included), you can contact either the Québec Ombudsman or the officer responsible for dealing with disclosures within the public body.

You can make a disclosure to the Québec Ombudsman at any time even if you have already done so to the disclosure officer and audits are underway. You may also contact the Québec Ombudsman if you are dissatisfied after the audits by the disclosure officer are completed.

If you are not a member of the personnel of the public body concerned, you must go to the Québec Ombudsman.
