    The Tribunal has updated its Backlog Strategy regarding the Screening Inventory Project.

    The Tribunal is continuing its process review and managing delays in its process as a result of unprecedented backlogs. As these move forward, the Tribunal has extended the Case Path Pilot for a further 6 months to May 6, 2024.

    By mid-2024, the Tribunal expects to introduce:

    • new Complaint Forms
    • changes to case processing
    • updates to its Rules of Practice and Procedure

    The Tribunal has also now updated its reporting on its Service Standards. The Tribunal is also currently reviewing the service standards in light of process changes and to better align with our new ongoing case volumes, increasing complexity of cases, technology, party needs, and resources.

    The Tribunal released a refreshed website on November 2, 2023. Give feedback on the Tribunal website.
