Investigation Update

The CRCC is reviewing materials and records received from the RCMP, including policies and training. Interviews with RCMP program areas have begun.

The investigation is progressing, though significant delays in receiving the relevant materials from the RCMP continue. The CRCC has received little information or records from the RCMP "E" Division since July 2023, despite regular follow-ups and requests for updates. This will impact the timeline for the completion of the investigation.

Recently, the CRCC met with the RCMP to express concerns about the delays, and a way forward was agreed to, including bi-weekly meetings with the C-IRG Officer in Charge to provide updates on the status of CRCC requests. Since that meeting, the CRCC received more than 400 files. Significant amounts of materials remain outstanding but are expected to be received in the coming weeks.

The CRCC is monitoring progress closely and will provide an investigation status update in the new year.
