Complaints Process

About the Form

This interactive form lets you file your complaint online. It guides you as to important information to include. It also provides useful information on the possible decisions that can be made regarding a complaint, and on other options available to you.

To avoid misunderstandings, frustration and wasting time, we suggest you first read about possible decisions that can be made regarding your complaint.

  1. To complain about a federally appointed judge (Superior Court, Court of Appeal, etc.), you must direct your complaint to the Canadian Judicial Council.
  2. To complain about a member of the Administrative Tribunal of Québec, a member of the Commission des lésions professionnelles, a commissioner of the Commission des relations du travail ou a commissioner of the Régie du logement, you must direct your complaint to the Conseil de la justice administrative.
  3. The Conseil de la magistrature du Québec can only deal with complaints about provincially appointed judges, that is, judges of the Court of Québec, the Human Rights Tribunal, the Professions Tribunal, a Municipal Court and presiding justices of the peace.

The Conseil de la magistrature will do an initial review of your complaint. If the Conseil decides the complaint should be investigated further, it will look into the events that led to the complaint. If necessary, the Conseil will set up an inquiry committee. This committee will decide if any sanctions should be imposed.
