The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada (FCAC)
The FCAC supervises federally-regulated financial institutions, such as CIBC, to ensure they comply with federal consumer protection laws.
Federal consumer protection laws affect you in a number of ways. For example, financial institutions must provide you with information about their fees, interest rates and complaint handling procedures.
The FCAC also helps educate consumers and monitors voluntary codes of conduct and public commitments designed to protect the interest of consumers.
If you have a regulatory complaint, or a complaint concerning a voluntary code of conduct, you can contact the FCAC online, by phone or by mail.
