COGCC Complaints Process
Effective Jan. 9, 2015, the COGCC has a new process in place to manage public complaints related to oil and gas operations. The COGCC remains committed to working with complainants, operators, individuals and communities to resolve issues under its jurisdiction.

This new complaint process was developed using Lean process improvement techniques which focused on improving public transparency of the process, making it easier for the public to file a complaint, and making the internal processing, closing and communication of complaints more effective.  

As a result, the COGCC has created a dedicated webpage that contains the following:

  • A newly developed and easy to use tool to file a complaint online.
  • Guidance for how to file a complaint. To be considered a formal complaint, all complaints are required to be in a written format.
  • Questions and answers related to the complaint process, including what to expect and rights of the complainant.
  • Guidance and tools to search for complaints already filed.
