The WorkBC Maple Ridge Program Manager will contact you and explain the final decision. Written notification will be provided to you. As services are provided based on assessed need and eligibility, rather than entitlement, there is no option for Clients who disagree with Service Provider decisions to appeal to the Ministry The decision at the end of a formal review is final.
All Client-related complaints, concerns and decision-review requests are documented in the Integrated Case Management (ICM) system as they occur, including: date, nature of issue, outcome and date of resolution.
The above process will assist the Contractor to identify possible gaps in either service or staff training. Once identified the Centre Manager and Program Manager will meet to discuss solutions and implantation plan if required.
Our Quality Management Plan includes Client Satisfaction Surveys to be completed either on line or in a paper form at various intervals (after 3 months, after workshops and at 12 months) through the Client’s journey. All comments will be reviewed and if requested the Center Manager will connect with the Client.
