Findings of the Tribunal

The Tribunal may refuse a complaint or not accept a complaint on procedural grounds during a meeting and shall convene a hearing to consider any complaint that has been duly recorded and not subsequently withdrawn by the complainant and administratively closed.

After a hearing, the Tribunal may find that a complaint is substantiated, frivolous or vexatious, or incorrect in its allegations or suspicions. Hearing decisions will be based only on evidence presented at the hearing, including any written submissions and evidence received during the pre-hearing stage.
