Complaints

First Canadian aims to take care of its customers. If you think we’ve gotten something wrong, please let us know by following the steps below. We promise to handle your complaint in a professional and courteous manner, guided by the following principles:

Culture

We welcome your feedback as a way to make sure we take care of our customers. If we’ve dropped the ball, we’ll put things right, and we’ll make sure we do things better next time.

Accountability

We want to be open and honest when accounting for our decisions and actions.

Procedure

We will investigate your complaint thoroughly and fairly. Our decision will be based on the available facts and evidence, and it will be made objectively and fairly, without undue delay.

Put it Right

Sometimes we get it wrong. When we do, we will take steps to put things right in a fair and proportionate manner. Sometimes we will owe you an apology. And sometimes we must change our procedures, improve employee training, or revise an earlier decision.

Please select the relevant Complaints Handling Protocol below to help get you through this process.
