Complaint management process

Receive  –  We strive for ‘first contact resolution’ in all areas of our business. Customer complaints are received by BC Ferries’ Customer Service Centre, terminal and on board staff on a daily basis, and are usually resolved on the spot.

Record  –  When necessary, complaints are escalated to our Customer Relations department and actioned based on priority of issue and then in order received.

Investigate  –  If you have submitted a comment that requires further attention and/or investigation from our Customer Relations team, we may be in touch with further questions and/or when we have a resolution ready for you.

Respond  –  Response time can vary depending on the matter and investigation required, however, it is our goal to get back to you within 7–14 business days. Customer Relations will reach out to you via phone or email.

Escalation process  –  If you are not satisfied with the response or resolution provided by the Customer Relations team, your file will be escalated to the Director of Customer Care for review. If your file needs to be escalated further, the Vice President of Marketing & Customer Experience or the President & CEO of BC Ferries will review the complaint and provide a final response on behalf of the company.

If you feel the issue is still not resolved to your satisfaction, you may contact the BC Ferry Commissioners office by way of a written submission within 30 days of final response from BC Ferries. Include copies of all correspondence between yourself and BC Ferries, as evidence that all avenues to resolve the issue directly with BC Ferries have been taken. If the BC Ferry Commission determines the issue does not fall within their jurisdiction, they will advise you and BC Ferries.


Check lost & found

If you lost an item while travelling with us, you can direct message your lost item details to us on Twitter @BCFerries or contact a terminal directly. Terminals without a lost and found phone number will direct you to the main Customer Service Centre.
