If the Syndic decides to file a complaint, the Disciplinary Council hears the parties and renders a decision on the complaint filed against the CRHA or CRIA. At this stage, proceedings become public unless the Council orders closed proceedings.
If the Syndic decides not to file a complaint, the complainant may, within 30 days of receiving the decision, request the opinion of the Review Committee. Before this Committee, proceedings are always confidential.
Please send to the Syndic your investigation request accompanied by supporting documents, where appropriate.
The Syndic receives complaints from the public. It investigates and responds to the complainant’s request; if it concludes that the Code of Ethics has been violated, it may file a complaint before the Disciplinary Council.
