Please Read Before Filing Your Complaint:
The Centre is committed to providing the very best service to its clients, their families, community partners and members of the public, including working with you to resolve any concerns or complaints you may have.
What to Do If You Have a Complaint:
- If you are comfortable, please share your concern with the staff person that you are working with, and they will listen to you and attempt to resolve the issue. Whenever an LCC staff person becomes aware of a complaint we will respond within 24 hours to indicate we are aware of the complaint and will work with you to resolve it.
- If your issue is not resolved during Step 1, or if you are not comfortable approaching the staff person involved, or if the concern is of significant nature, please speak with the Manager of that Program. The Manager will get back to you within 3 business days.
- If the issue continues to not be resolved at Step 2, please complete an internal Complaints Form (located under Complaint Resources) or submit an online form. If submitting a Complaints Form, you can share your complaint with the Program Manager by e-mail, letter, fax, or in-person. If the complaint is about the Program Manager, the form can be sent to their Manager (to find out who this is, please call 905-389-1361 ext. 0).
- After submission of the written complaint, we will arrange to discuss your complaint (in person or by phone). At this stage, the Board of Directors is also notified of the complaint.
