Ombudsman Saskatchewan

At Ombudsman Saskatchewan, we take complaints about provincial government ministries, agencies, Crown corporations and most health entities. We also take complaints about Saskatchewan cities, towns, villages, resort villages, rural municipalities, northern municipalities, and municipal council members.

If you think you have been treated unfairly:

  1. Talk to the person who made the decision. If that doesn’t work, find out if the decision can be reviewed or appealed.
  2. If you have tried to resolve the problem and you still think it’s unfair,
    Make a Complaint to our Office.

For more information about what we do or the kinds of complaints we take, see Before Making a Complaint or watch our video.
