Cases

Background

The IIO is committed to transparency through public reporting and is aware of previous recommendations made to public bodies regarding transparency. For example, the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP made a recommendation to the RCMP to provide regular, meaningful and timely updates to the media and public, specifically regarding police-involved shootings. Although the IIO is newly established and is still in the process of developing performance measures, the organization will endeavour to provide regular, meaningful and timely updates on the status of investigations wherever possible.

The chart below is intended to provide general information related to the active caseload investigations and do not represent specific investigations, activities or tasks. The chart will be updated on a bi-weekly basis.

Commonly Asked Questions

How does an IIO investigation conclude?

In the initial stages of an investigation, the IIO must determine if there is a connection between the serious harm or death and the actions of police. If there is a connection then the IIO will continue to investigate.

If there is no connection between police action  and the serious harm or death then the IIO will release jurisdiction.

When the IIO proceeds with an investigation, these investigations end in one of two ways:

  • If the Chief Civilian Director (CCD) of the IIO concludes that an officer may have committed any offence then the CCD will refer this case to Crown counsel for consideration of charges. The IIO does not lay charges.
  • If the CCD concludes that no officer may have committed any offence then a public report will be posted on the publications page. These public reports give an in-depth look at the case and explain the CCD’s rationale for not referring the case to Crown counsel.
