Discipline Proceeding

Only the final investigation report and referenced materials, submissions of the complainant and any other relevant written record can be considered. The investigating officer and witnesses requested by the member and approved by the Discipline Authority are the only individuals who may give evidence.

The member is not compellable, but an adverse inference may be drawn if the member fails to testify. The member, or his/her counsel or agent and the Discipline Authority's representative, may make submissions regarding the complaint; adequacy of the investigation; or discipline or corrective measures.

After the Discipline Proceeding, the Discipline Authority must provide a report containing the findings and discipline and/or corrective measures, with reasons, to the Commissioner, member and the complainant.
