The City of Brantford provides over 200 programs and services to the community and remains committed to enhancing customer service throughout our operations. However, customers may not always be satisfied with a service provided and should have the ability to express their issues or concerns to frontline staff providing the service.

Customers are required to notify frontline staff in the department providing the service of their dissatisfaction with the intent of reaching a satisfactory resolution. City employees will resolve issues or concerns of a customer to the best of their ability, working within established guidelines. If a customer is not satisfied with the handling of their complaint via regular customer service channels or by frontline staff, a formal complaint can be submitted.
