The Forum of Canadian Ombudsman was formed in 2000 by a group of ombudsman practitioners with a desire to provide a “home” for like minded individuals. The initial group were all people who had been members in other organizations that felt there could be “a bit more”, an organization that catered to the diversity of the Canadian Mosaic. The rest as is said is history.
FCO currently boasts more than 450 private and corporate members. The membership list includes representatives of the profession working in the government milieu, private industry, and in colleges and universities. Our members are from all areas of Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic coasts.
FCO benefits from having members from the classical to the organizational type of ombudsman and the wealth of knowledge and wisdom this spectrum of practitioners brings to the organization.
