CORE quarterly report on inquiries and complaints – Q4 2021-2022
Inquiry and complaint statistics are posted on a quarterly basis throughout the fiscal year (April – March).
An inquiry is a request for information about filing a complaint, or a request to file a complaint about an issue that is clearly outside the CORE’s mandate (for example, a complaint about something that happened in Canada).
A complaint is about an issue that may be within the CORE’s mandate.
More detailed information on inquiries and complaints will be provided in the CORE’s Annual Report.
