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

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 86 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

Last resort : improving fairness and accountability in British Columbia's Income Assistance Program by British Columbia( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ministry of Housing and Social Development (formerly the Ministry of Employment and Income Assistance) has, as one of its principal roles, ensuring that British Columbians who are in need receive the supports that we, as a society, have determined are appropriate. At the same time, it is required to assist those who are capable to prepare for, and obtain, employment. One of the continual challenges the ministry faces is how to distinguish between those who are capable of self-sufficiency and those who need ongoing assistance from society to ensure their well-being and enhance their ability to participate as useful and valued members of society. This significant role makes the ministry the face of British Columbia for those in our society who are facing serious economic, social and health challenges, or in some cases, challenges in all three areas. Consequently it is particularly important that the ministry model the fair, courteous, consistent, and reasonable treatment we would expect any person in British Columbia to receive when dealing with a public agency. This is reflected in the ministry's own core values of respect, empathy, equity, fairness, accountability, transparency and open communications. In the course of this investigation we have looked at whether certain procedures and practices of the ministry appear to reflect those values and are consistent with the ministry's stated goals and role. In this report, I made 26 findings and 28 recommendations for rectifying deficiencies and improving administrative processes. These focussed on the areas of the income assistance application process; the Persons with Persistent Multiple Barriers to Employment program; medical and other documentation requirements; and implementation of prior commitments. All but one of the recommendations was accepted by the ministry; some are already in the process of implementation and the ministry has committed to implementing the rest over the next two years

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

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 71 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

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 70 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

The right to know : a complaint about the Greater Victoria Public Library meeting room policy by British Columbia( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the report of the Ombudsman's investigation into a complaint concerning the refusal of the Board of the Greater Victoria Public Library to amend the policy that regulates the use of library facilities. The complainant, the Jewish Federation of Victoria & Vancouver Island, was concerned that the Board allowed a group that allegedly promoted hatred to use the facilities, and wanted an amendment that would disallow use by groups promoting ideas likely to promote discrimination, hatred, or contempt. The Ombudsman reviewed the operation of Board policies from a fairness perspective, focussing on the need for individuals to know the conditions & restrictions under which permission to use public meeting rooms will be granted. The report documents the circumstances of the complaint, the Ombudsman's investigation, the responses from the Board, and the reasons that led to the conclusions of the investigation
Progress reported in implementing the 2009 Braidwood report recommendations and processing police complaints by British Columbia( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Underpinning this committee inquiry is the belief that in a functioning democracy based on the rule of law, there must be effective civilian oversight of police conduct to uphold public trust in law enforcement agencies and the complaint process. Since 1999, the tool kit of police forces in British Columbia has included a conducted energy weapon (CEW) to be deployed in a volatile situation where use of force is necessary to control or subdue a person who is resisting police commands and/or posing a threat to public safety. On the use-of-force continuum, a CEW (commonly referred to as a Taser) falls into the category of an intermediate (or less-lethal) weapon, defined as a weapon whose normal use is not intended or likely to cause serious injury or death. However, the tragic CEW-related death of Robert Dziekański at Vancouver International Airport on October 14, 2007 alarmed the public, attracted intense media scrutiny and prompted a two-phase inquiry in British Columbia conducted by retired justice Thomas R. Braidwood, and an investigation undertaken by a committee of the Canadian House of Commons. In line with a dual mandate, this report is divided into two parts. Part 1 contains a summary of the follow-up review of the 2009 Braidwood report recommendations on restricting CEW use in British Columbia. Part 2 reports on the police complaint audit commissioned by the Committee.--Document

Open meetings : best practices guide for local governments by British Columbia( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide grew out of an interest in sharing some of that information in order to help local governments comply with statutory requirements, to improve consistency in practice as well as to showcase the best practices for local governments to follow when fulfilling their open meeting requirements. At the heart of these best practices are the same values that the Office of the Ombudsperson strives to uphold: openness, transparency, and accountability.
