Le contenu


The ombudsman receives complaints from members of the HEC Montréal community who feel that they have been treated unfairly or discriminated against, and who have already exhausted all other mechanisms, procedures and internal resources available to help them resolve the issue at hand.


For whom?

The services of the ombudsman are available to every member of the HEC Montréal community: students, prospective students, graduates and all HEC Montréal employees.

How are complaints processed?

When a complaint is filed, the ombudsman must:

  • Investigate the validity of the complaint. To this end, the ombudsman has access to all documents and information he or she may require.
  • Identify and propose solutions.
  • Make formal recommendations.

The ombudsman studies submitted complaints in a manner that is fully impartial, fully independent and fully confidential.


In cases of conflict between people and groups, the ombudsman can act as mediator upon request of the HEC Montréal administration.
