Respect for OAC Staff

OAC staff are here to help by providing feedback and information on grants and services. However, OAC will not tolerate disrespectful behaviour or aggressive treatment by the public towards our staff who are fulfilling their duties. 

We acknowledge and recognize that granting programs are highly competitive and that it can be very disappointing when a grant application is not successful. Nonetheless, OAC will not accept behaviour such as raised voices, vulgar or aggressive language, negative comments regarding professional expertise or personal character, contact repeated beyond reason, or any type of threat. 

Any of these behaviours will not be tolerated and staff have been instructed to provide a warning and then disengage if the behaviour continues. Staff will also document the encounter in case further action is required.

We are here to serve the public, but not at the expense of the mental and physical well-being of our staff. If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, feel free to contact us via the Public Feedback form on OAC’s website.
