An acknowledgement letter will be sent to you within 10 business days of the receipt of the complaint. If the complaint cannot be closed before that time, we will inform you of the name and contact details of the person in charge of resolving your complaint. A letter will be sent to you within one month to inform you of the status and/or outcome of your complaint. If the outcome has been closed, we will inform you of the specific actions we have taken to resolve the complaint. If we have not been able to resolve the complaint, we will update you on the status and the cause of the delay as well as the expected end date every month thereafter until the matter is closed.
