Tarion Creating Ombuds Program for Home Buyers

Tarion, the independent corporation that administers Ontario's New Home Warranty Plan, is creating a new executive-level Ombuds position to deal with consumer complaints. "We certainly came to the conclusion that Tarion has to be more open to consumers and has to have someone for them to reach out to," said Tarion's president and CEO Howard Bogach. The ombudsperson will not only mediate homeowner's complaints, but will be asked to suggest any changes in policy or practice that may be needed, Bogach said. News of the job posting comes just weeks after a stinging 16-page report from provincial Ombudsperson André Marin. (Toronto Star.)
