What happens after I submit a Reporting Form?

A submitted Reporting From is received, reviewed and retained by the HRCO. If you complaint appears to fall under the Board's Human Rights Policy #240, you will be offered a confidential consultation with a Human Rights Officer in order to determine next steps.
