Preliminary report by British Columbia Electoral Boundaries Commission( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Legislative Assembly instructed the British Columbia Electoral Boundaries Commission to prepare a report by August 15, 2007, with its proposals for the number of electoral districts and the area, boundaries and names for each district under the current single member plurality system and the proposed B.C. single transferable vote system. In this Preliminary Report the Commission lays out the rules under which it operates, its preliminary conclusions and the reasons for them. The Commission will hold public hearings around the province, so that people can make representations responding to the proposals. Following these public hearings, the Commission may amend these proposals and must submit a final report to the Speaker by February 15, 2008. That document will be the Final Report.--Includes text from document

Victims of crime, victims of change : transition and discretion in crime victim assistance legislation in British Columbia by British Columbia( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Special Report No. 30 details the experience of a woman who was awarded a pension under the Criminal Injury Compensation program after her husband was killed. The woman, Ms. T., was promised that her pension would continue for the rest of her life and that it would be adjusted semi annually to reflect changes in the cost of living. Several years later, those cost of living adjustments were abruptly discontinued when responsibility for the Crime Victim Assistance Program was transferred from the Workers' Compensation Board to the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. Without prior warning, Ms. T. and about 390 other victims of crime received an unsigned and undated form letter informing them that cost of living adjustments would no longer be made to their pensions. This Ombudsman report describes the investigation process and draws conclusions based on the investigation results.--Includes text from document
Winning fair and square : a report on the British Columbia Lottery Corporations's prize payout process by British Columbia( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ombudsman initiated the investigation into lottery prize payout processes in December 2006 after serious questions were raised by the public and the media about the seemingly high rates of wins among British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) retailers and BCLC retailer employees. Special Report No. 31 examines whether BCLC had adequate procedures in place to ensure that correct prize amounts were paid to the rightful owners of winning tickets. Additionally, the report examines the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch's (GPEB) oversight of BCLC's lottery retail network between the years 2002 and 2006. The Ombudsman made 27 recommendations regarding BCLC lottery validation and payout procedures. These recommendations focus on the collection of information and data, the lottery validation process, compliance and enforcement and addressing past deficiencies.--Publisher's website

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009 it became clear from complaints received by the Office of the Ombudsperson that the Ministry of Housing and Social Development, now the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation, was not meeting the requirements in its own legislation that it complete reconsideration decisions within specified time limits. As a result some ministry clients permanently lost benefits they were entitled to receive, and would have received, had reconsideration decisions been made in time.This report identifies a number of decisions made by the ministry that affected its ability to conduct reconsiderations in the timeframe required as well as additional factors that influence the timeliness of reconsiderations on an ongoing basis

The best of care : getting it right for seniors in British Columbia (Part 1) by British Columbia( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This public report is the first of two from the Office of the Ombudsperson on seniors' care in British Columbia. This report focuses specifically on seniors in residential care facilities. The issue being explored in the report is the need for quality of life exploration and analysis for seniors in residential care due to complaints and concerns from seniors in facility situations, as well as concerns from their families. These concerns focus primarily around lack of understanding regarding patients' rights, lack of disclosure and information access regarding the residential system as a whole, and the lack of availability of information. In the report, the Ombudsperson, Kim Carter, presents three interrelated areas where changes could be made to improve the current system for seniors
