Alberta and Saskatchewan Ombudsman representatives to visit Lloydminster

The offices of the Alberta Ombudsman and Saskatchewan Ombudsman will host a public presentation and provide one-on-one meetings for complainants in Lloydminster later this month.

“We recognize Lloydminster is in a unique geographic position, and our two offices felt it would be appropriate to conduct a joint visit,” said Peter Hourihan, Alberta’s Ombudsman. “Reaching out directly to people is one of the best ways to improve their understanding of what we do, and to provide direct access to an Ombudsman expert.”

“My staff look forward to meeting with people in Lloydminster,” said Mary McFadyen, Saskatchewan’s Ombudsman. “As an independent office, we have a role in helping ensure that government runs its programs fairly.”

Residents of Lloydminster and surrounding communities are encouraged to book an appointment with an investigator to discuss how they may have been treated unfairly by a provincial government service on:

Thursday, May 28

The Legacy Centre
5101 46 Street
10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

A public presentation titled “What does an ombudsman do?” will also be held at the Legacy Centre from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., featuring a senior investigator from each office. Admission is free.

Alberta Ombudsman investigators will also visit Vermilion to meet directly with complainants. These sessions will be held on:

Friday, May 29
Provincial Building, Main Floor Conference Room
4701 52 Street, Vermilion
