In the following figure, there is no distinction made between ITMP disclosure complaints (those related to whether the Internet service provider (ISP) has disclosed information, on its website or in customer materials, about any ITMPs it uses) and ITMP usage complaints (those related to the effect of ITMPs on customers).

Total complaints received this quarter: 11
Active complaints as of 31 March 2014: 4
Closed* this quarter: 26
Forwarded to Compliance and Enforcement** this quarter: 0
*Closed complaints include complaints where CRTC staff has determined that the ISP is compliant with the CRTC’s policies, or the ISP has come into compliance subsequent to the complaint, and therefore the complaint is resolved; complaints that have been closed due to insufficient information received from the complainant; and complaints related to practices other than an ISP’s use of ITMPs.
**The Telecommunications branch may forward a file to the CRTC’s Compliance and Enforcement branch, as outlined in Telecom Information Bulletin 2011-609.
