Public CommentsFor complaints about services provided through Community Care Access Centres:  
The client's Case Manager (for home care) or Placement Coordinator (for Long-Term Care placement) is required to explain the following review procedure: 
1) client may request review by a Manager 
2) If still unresolved, client may ask for review by the CCAC Ombud  
3) if dissatisfied with the decision of the Ombud, client may appeal to the Health Services Appeal and Review Board 
This process may also be supplemented by reporting complaint to the Long-Term Care Action Line, which can listen to concerns and mediate disputes between clients and their CCAC and/or service provider, but has limited authority to make decisions on services, for more details see here
