I think if there is a vote for best #ServiceOntario office, Brighton would win hands down!
Yesterday Nathalie tweeted out:
"I have to say, our @ServiceOntario Brighton clerk offers the best customer service I have ever had. Anywhere. Anytime. #outstanding "
Barb (from PEC) recently wrote to me :
"I just had a great experience with Service Ontario Brighton office. The person was so friendly and so efficient. I am coming to that office whenever I need anything from Service Ontario."
The comments on Brighton Events Facebook page confirms that June is exceptional at Customer Service and Brighton is very lucky to have her.
