STEP 4. Appeal to the Office of the Ombudsman
Should your dealings with the Customer Care Assurance team of Roger Menard Insurance not resolve the issue to your satisfaction, you or any of the parties concerned may refer your complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman for member companies of Roger Menard Financial Group. The services of the Ombudsman are free of charge.
This Office has been established to provide customers of Roger Menard Financial Group with an appeal option for unresolved issues, and to ensure that all parties involved in a dispute receive a fair and impartial hearing. The Office also ensures that customers are treated with consideration and respect, and that everyone involved in the proceedings retains their dignity and privacy.
The Ombudsman is empowered to examine commitments made by member companies of Roger Menard Financial Group and to review their compliance with proper business procedures.
Attempts to resolve the issue may be made through mediation efforts. The role of the mediator is to help the parties involved reach a mutually acceptable resolution to the dispute by maintaining open channels of communication and by identifying issues, interests and possible options.
Although the Office of the Ombudsman staff is trained in mediation, in some instances, the Ombudsman may suggest – or the customer may request – an external mediator. In the case of external mediation or arbitration, costs are generally shared equally between Roger Menard Financial Group and the customer.
The Ombudsman can be contacted at:
Office of the Ombudsman Roger Menard Financial Group P.O. Box 1, Royal Bank Plaza
