The Québec Ombudsman’s special report concerning the Curateur public and how it supervises private tutorships

On March 30, 2023, Québec Ombudsman Marc-André Dowd released an investigative report titled Under tutorship but vulnerable nonetheless – Protect the assets of incapable adults under private protective supervision regimes. In it, it indicates that when there is financial abuse or mismanagement by certain tutors, the Curateur public:
  • Is slow to react at times;
  • Does not systematically do what needs to be done;
  • Does not always follow up properly on problematic files.
“We made 17 recommendations to the Curateur public to right the situation. We expect to see the required corrective measures put in place without delay,” said Marc-André Dowd.
