It is recommended the following be set out in writing: alleged misconduct, actual or potential harm caused and corrective action desired.

If you are having difficulty filing your complaint, we suggest you consult the Autorité des marchés financiers (“AMF”) website, which offers tools to assist you with these proceedings1. It is also possible to fill out a complaint form prepared by the AMF2. If you are having difficulty writing your complaint, please contact a member of our team who will assist you.

Following the filing of the complaint: 

  • The Chief Compliance Officer is designated as the case

  • The Chief Compliance Officer will review and investigate the complaint. Complete contact information will be available in the acknowledgement of the complaint.
  • The detailed response to your complaint will be sent to you by email or mail as soon as possible, but no later than 60 days from the date the complaint is received. This response will include a summary of the complaint, the results of the investigation, the final decision explained and your options if you are not satisfied with the response.

If the Chief Compliance Officer is unable to send you a detailed response within this 60- day period, the Chief Compliance Officer will contact you within this time frame to inform you of the reasons for the delay and the time frame for completing the file.

If, after analysis of the complaint file by the Chief Compliance Officer, the client is not satisfied with the handling of the complaint, he or she may have recourse to independent mediation services. In Quebec, the AMF offers mediation services when the complaint handling and dispute resolution mechanisms offered by PGA to the client do not lead to a satisfactory resolution. In Ontario, the Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investments (“OBSI”) provides mediation services in the context of dispute resolution.

As with all financial matters, it is important to keep records. Keep documents such as the investment management agreement, account opening forms, and your account statements. Document the steps you take to resolve any complaints by keeping copies of letters, faxes, emails and notes taken during retention.
