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.

We are continuing to take precautions due to COVID-19. For now, our doors are closed to the public, but you can still make complaints by calling 1-800-667-9787 or by using our secure online complaint form.

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 the kinds of complaints we take, see Before Making a Complaint and Where to Complain.
