CORE Quarterly Report on Inquiries and Complaints – Q2 2022-2023
The CORE publishes statistics about inquiries and complaints every three months (quarterly) from April to March (the fiscal year).
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 looks like it may be within the CORE’s mandate. The CORE provides more information about inquiries and complaints in its annual report. You can find our most recent Annual Report here.
