**Complaint Statistics and Complaint Outcomes may not necessarily balance due to a member having more than one complaint against them at the time their membership is cancelled or resigned. Cancelled/resigned members’ complaints do not appear as part of ‘censure applied’ as the censure has not been completed at the time of cancellation/resignation. A member may be cancelled/resigned as part of censure by the PRB; or for non-payment of annual dues in which case, if there is a PRB complaint against the member, the PRB will close the file and flag the database indicating that prior to reinstatement, PRB conditions must be satisfactorily completed.
