According to the Forum of Canadian Ombudsman; in Canada, ombudsman/person generally [emphasis added; OSBSO.org is a private or commercial or industrial ombudsman/person] operate under three types of mandates (Source):

  • Ombudsman/person established by provincial, territorial or federal legislation with strong powers of investigation and structural independence. [Example: provincial and territorial ombudsman/person, some federal ombudsman/person offices].
  • Ombudsman/person established by policy or terms of reference by both private and public sector organizations. They primarily use various forms of early resolution methods but may also have the power to investigate and the authority to publish annual and special reports. [Example: ombudsman/ombudspersons in universities and colleges, banks, utilities].
  • Ombudsman/person established by corporate or organizational policy or terms of reference which generally use only facilitative methods for assisting with the resolution of complaints. [Example: employee ombudsman for banks and some federal agencies].


OSBSO.org services are delivered on a fee-for-service or cost-recovery basis to those making the complaint or seeking services. Any non-regulated firm in the financial services industry sub-sector is eligible to join OSBSO.org.


Why is there a cost to OSBSO.org's services; aren't all financial sector ombudsman/person services free of cost to complainants?

The answer depends on the country in which you are located, or jurisdiction where the alleged non-conformity occurred. Yes, many countries have ombudsman services for the financial sector for REGULATED organizations. Shadow banking sector participants are NOT REGULATED, so are not subject to the same stringent rules as their regulated counter-parts. For example, shadow banking entities are not required to maintain ombudsperson's, whose services are normally paid for by the member entity pursuant to law. This is primary reason - among other reasons - that most countries do have provisions in place to help individuals and corporations who are subject to problems with a shadow banking financial services provider; until now, with OSBSO.org.
