Concerns about Community Living of British Columbia (CLBC)
If a family, caregiver or individual has concerns about services or a decision made by CLBC, they may register a complaint. The CLBC complaint process is as follows;
- Bring the issues or concerns to the CLBC staff member assigned to you.
- If you are not satisfied with the response to your concerns by your assigned staff member, you may register a complaint by filling out a Complaints Resolution Form (available at CLBC locations or via the CLBC website)
- Mail or deliver the completed Complaints Resolution Form to the CLBC office or send it to the CLBC Website. The completed complaint will be forwarded to the office manager.
- A response can be expected within 48 hours of receiving the complaint.
- If the family, caregiver or individual is still unsatisfied with the results of this response, a request can be made to have a review of the issue by the Director or Regional Operations. The Director of Quality Service may also be involved in resolving your concerns.
