You can read the decision of the Human Rights Tribunal here: 15682 time limit decision (2).
In the decision, the Human Rights Tribunal noted that despite the “relatively short” delay in bringing this complaint allowing a late complaint still might encourage other complainants to ignore the substantive time limits set out in the Human Rights Code.
