How to make a complaint about an RPA member, affiliate, firm or student.
We can only help or get involved in your complaint if the individual is a member of the Society of Professional Accountants of Canada, student member, or if the accounting firm is regulated by us.
In many cases, problems can be resolved by talking to your accountant. If talking does not resolve the issues, you should write to your accountant and ask them to respond within 14 days. Occasionally, you may find you’re unable to resolve the problem, or that the nature of the issue(s) is such that you need to contact the SPAC for help.
