The Civil Resolution Tribunal, or CRT, is Canada’s first online tribunal. The CRT currently resolves small claims disputes Can$5,000 and under, and strata property of any amount. On April 1, 2019, the CRT will also resolve motor vehicle accident claims Can$50,000 and under.

For the month of October 2018, the CRT received 485 new disputes, very close to the average of 478 new disputes per month since April 2018. It completed a 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.

Shannon Salter, interviewed below, is the CRT’s Chair.
