Complaints Process: TABIRS Procedures
TABIRS works hard to provide the best possible service and always strives to improve. You can help us do that by letting TABIRS know how you are feeling about your support.
1. Talk to any staﬀ member.
TABIRS expects its staﬀ to respect your rights and treat you with dignity. If you feel that you are not being treated respectfully, or if you have questions or concerns about your support, please talk to a staﬀ member. Often the best place to start is to speak directly with your Primary Facilitator or another front-line worker that you feel comfortable talking with. You may also speak with another representative of TABIRS, such as a Manager, Service Coordinator, Psychologist or Social Worker. All staﬀ members have a responsibility to report your concerns to their supervisors so you know your concerns will be heard.
2. Your concerns may be brought to the Executive Director.
If you are not satisﬁed with the way your questions or concerns have been addressed so far, you may bring your concern to the TABIRS President, Hedy Chandler. Hedy can be reached at (416) 696-6031, toll free: (833) 696-6031, or by e-mail at [email protected]. You can also write her a letter addressed to 62 Finch Ave. West, Toronto, Ontario, M2N 7G1.
3. Your concern may be brought to the CHIRS/ TABIRS Board of Directors.
TABIRS has a Board of Directors, which is made up of volunteer community members. If you are not satisﬁed with the President’s response, you may lodge your complaint with the chairperson of the CHIRS/ TABIRS Board of Directors. They can be contacted in writing at: 62 Finch Avenue West, Toronto, Ontario M2N 7G1.
4. The Health Services Appeal and Review Board (HSARB)
If you are still not satisﬁed after receiving a response from the CHIRS/ TABIRS Board of Directors, you have a legal right to take your complaint to the HSARB. The HSARB is an independent body made up of members of the general public. For general information about the appeal process, you can visit their website at www.hsarb.on.ca. You can contact the HSARB by telephone at (416) 327-8512 or by e-mail at [email protected]. To start the appeal process, you must write to the HSARB and ask for a hearing. They will tell you how to do this. The HSARB will tell you when your hearing is scheduled and what you need to do to prepare. After the hearing, the HSARB will send you a letter about its decision.
If I ﬁle a complaint, will my services be aﬀected?
The Bill of Rights states that you have the right to raise concerns or recommend changes about your services. TABIRS will not refuse or reduce services to you if you ﬁle a complaint.
TABIRS takes all complaints seriously.
