A special form must be completed and signed to file a complaint. So, it is not possible to file a complaint online or by email, phone or letter. Usually, complaints can only be filed about incidents that happened within the last 12 months, or if a continuing violation is alleged, within one year of the last alleged incident of the violation.
If you wish to file a complaint about discrimination or harassment in New Brunswick, you should phone 1-888-471-2233 (toll-free). You don't need to give your name when calling initially, but it is not possible to file a complaint anonymously.
When you phone, our staff will discuss how the New Brunswick Human Rights Act may or may not apply to the situation you are calling about.
The staff can also explain the human rights complaint process. To find out more about the process, see the Complaint Process pamphlet (pdf). To learn more, see the Introduction to Grounds of Discrimination.
