TOGO’s Complaint Policy

How to make a complaint?

You can submit a complaint via the following methods:

  • Email: info@leschienstogo.com
  • Send a letter: PO Box 88034 Québec Succursale Val-Bélair, Québec, QC, G3J 1Y9

  • Your name
  • Your Address – postal and/or email
  • Telephone number
  • Details of the complaint

How TOGO assess a complaint?

When a complaint is received, an assessment must be made about the appropriate course of action:

  • The executive director will determine if no action is required as there is no real basis for the complaint. The reasoning will be communicated clearly to the person making the complaint;
  • If the complaint is about a denial of eligibility for our services, then our executive director will investigate the situation.
  • If the executive director believes that denial of eligibility for our services was appropriate, then the reasoning will be communicated to the person making the complaint by email within a reasonable time.

All employees, volunteers or clients who believe they have been discriminated against must report any incident to TOGO’s executive director.

What if you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint?

In the most unusual circumstance when the complainant is not satisfied with the response from the executive director, he/she may have the matter referred to our Board president : info@jeanlessard.com. Our Board president will then consult with our review committee and assess the situation.
