Request a Review

Complainants must request a review, in writing *, within 60 days of receiving a formal notification from the RCMP concerning the outcome * of their complaint.

If you have made a complaint concerning the conduct of an RCMP member and are not satisfied with the way the RCMP handled your complaint, you can request a review.

If you request a review, the Commission will contact the RCMP, advise it of your request for review and request all relevant information regarding your complaint. Once all relevant material is received, the Commission will thoroughly review your complaint, the RCMP's response and all other relevant material such as witness statements, transcripts, police reports and notes and RCMP policies and procedures.

Do you have questions? More information can be found in the Review Process: Frequently Asked Questions.

Communicating with our staff

The Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP is committed to communicating with you in a respectful, professional and civil manner. Similarly, we ask complainants to extend the same courtesy to our staff.

We understand that the complaint process and the circumstances that give rise to complaints can be stressful. However, we will not accept threatening, discriminatory or harassing behaviour or profane communications.

The Commission is required by law to protect staff from harassing, discriminatory and threatening behaviour. Please note that repeated behaviour of this kind may result in the Commission restricting communications or no longer communicating with you beyond advising you of the outcome of your complaint.
