Authority to Refuse to Resolve a Claim or Dispute

The CRT may refuse to resolve a claim

The CRT may refuse to resolve a claim if it considers the claim would more appropriately be resolved by another legally binding process or has already been resolved through a legally binding process.

The CRT may also refuse if it decides “the request for resolution does not disclose a reasonable claim or is an abuse of process”, the “issues in the claim or the dispute are too complex for the dispute resolution process of the tribunal or otherwise impractical for the tribunal to case manage or resolve”, involves a constitutional question or application of the Human Rights Code or the CRT is otherwise satisfied the claim is beyond its jurisdiction.
