CORE quarterly report on inquiries and complaints – Q1 2022-2023
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.
First quarter 2022-2023 (April 1- June 30)
- Fifteen (15) new complaints received:
- During the reporting period, the CORE has been assessing the admissibility of 16 complaints, 15 of which were new submissions. One complaint was a file that had been re-opened during the last reporting period.
- The CORE could not assess the admissibility of one complaint because of insufficient information (see below Complaints closed).
- One complaint was resolved between the parties before completion of the admissibility assessment (see below Complaints closed).

- Two (2) complaints were closed:
- One complaint originally filed in the 1st quarter of 2021-22 and re-opened during the last quarter of 2021-2022 at the request of the complainant, was closed during this quarter because the Complainant did not provide sufficient information for the CORE to assess the admissibility of the complaint.
- Another complaint, received during the 1st quarter of 2022-2023, was closed when the Complainant indicated the matter was being resolved between the parties.
