What Is a Preliminary Inquiry?

Answer

A preliminary inquiry is a quick, informal investigation into facts and circumstances reported to the court. The purpose of a preliminary inquiry is to allow the defence to investigate the case and determine if the crown has sufficient evidence to warrant a trial. The inquiry should not take more than three working days, although there are no formal requirements on how the inquiry is carried out.
