CORE quarterly report on inquiries and complaints – Q3 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.
