Here’s our monthly statistics report! If there’s information you would like to see added to our monthly reports, please contact us, and we will do our best to include them.

We received 485 new disputes last month, very close to the average of 478 new disputes per month since April 2018. We completed an very high number of disputes in October (592), resulting in a net reduction of 107 outstanding disputes. Outstanding disputes have been reduced by 226 since the end of June 2018.

This month, 335 disputes were closed by default decision, 74 were decided by a tribunal member (12% of completed disputes), 81 were withdrawn (many due to reaching an agreement), and 65 were resolved by agreement or consent order during facilitation. The CRT refused to accept 12 disputes (primarily due to lack of jurisdiction) and 18 Notices of Objection were filed.
