How to make a complaint
We all stand to gain from open communication. Whether for answering a question, solving a problem or sharing a success, communication is the key.
While we welcome any positive comments you may have, it is equally important for us to know when you have a problem so that we can resolve it and retain your confidence. At the same time, we use your feedback to make ongoing improvements to the products and services we provide.
There are a variety of ways you can express your concerns about your experience with Fido. We encourage you to get in touch with us, either in person or by telephone, email, mail or fax. To understand our escalation process, please review the four steps below.
Making a Complaint
At Fido, we want to handle your concerns in the most efficient, professional and respectful manner.
Here’s a quick and easy step-by-step reference to ensure we address your concerns. By following the steps below, your complaint will be resolved as quickly as possible.
Step 1 - Contact our Customer Care Centre
STEP 1 - Contact our Customer Care Centre
We encourage you to contact our Customer Service team by email or telephone about your concern. Our front-line agents have the tools, support and training to quickly understand and resolve complaints and concerns.
STEP 2: Escalate your complaint within the department
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your initial contact with a Customer Care representative at step 1, ask to whom you can escalate your complaint. You will be referred to a manager who will review and take responsibility for resolving your complaint.
STEP 3: Contact the Office of the President
Most concerns are resolved before they reach this step; however, if you are still not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint after step 2, please contact Fido’s Office of the President.
The Office of the President reviews only complaints that have been through steps 1 and 2, so to get the fastest possible response, please indicate whom you've already contacted, and why you disagree with their decision.
STEP 4: Contact the Office of the Ombudsman
We will provide a fair and impartial review of unresolved customer complaints, and we will recommend changes to enhance the customer experience.
What is the Office of the Ombudsman?
The Office of the Ombudsman provides an impartial review of unresolved complaints. The Office of the Ombudsman is not an advocate for either Fido or its customers. Our Ombudsman investigates both sides of an issue and assists the parties in reaching a fair and reasonable resolution. Recommendations are non-binding, and parties are free to pursue other avenues if an agreement is not reached.
How do I file a complaint with the Office of the Ombudsman?
The Office of the Ombudsman will review only disputes that have been through steps 1, 2 and 3. If you wish to submit your complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman, please do so in writing and outline exactly what happened, including the relevant dates, the names of any employees involved and any copies of relevant documents. It would also be helpful if you told us what you would like us to do for you. All correspondence with our office will be kept confidential.
