The syndic’s role is to ensure that members of the Order comply with the provisions of the Professional Code, the Code of ethics and the Order’s regulations.
Lodge a complaint
Anyone who wishes to lodge a complaint against a member of the Order may do so by addressing the syndic, which has the power to investigate a professional’s conduct. Following its investigation, the syndic may seize the disciplinary committee by way of a complaint, if relevant.
The syndic may also receive applications for conciliation in cases where clients have a dispute with a member of the Order concerning the amount of an account for professional services, whether it has been paid or not. For unpaid accounts, clients may file a written application for conciliation with the syndic, provided that the member has not instituted proceedings to recover the account. For accounts paid in full or in part, clients may file a written application for conciliation with the syndic within 45 days of the receipt of the account
