Yukon Ombudsman Act Amendments
September 24, 2010
As Ombudsman, I welcome the opportunity to make submissions to the Members' Services Board and recommend the following amendments to the Ombudsman Act.
The amendments proposed here will improve the Ombudsman Act by enhancing the operations of the Office of the Ombudsman overall while supporting the ability of the Ombudsman to pursue the mandate to its fullest and to better serve the interests of the people of Yukon.
I have identified issues for this submissions that are evident through;
- the operations of the Office of the Ombudsman;
- working daily with the Yukon legislation;
- an examiniation of the Ombudsman experience in other jurisdictions; and
- a comparison of legislation across jurisdictions.
See the report for full details.
