Our commitment to you
We’re committed to providing the highest quality service to our members and ensuring complaints are dealt with in a fair and timely manner. If you have a problem, we encourage you to get in touch with us right away so we can fix it as soon as possible.
How to share your concerns
Start at the source
Your first point of contact is the advice centre where the problem originated. If the employee at the advice centre is unable to help resolve the issue, ask to speak with their manager. They’ll have the authority to solve most problems right away.
If you’re unsure who to contact, simply reach out to our Contact Centre at 1.866.863.6237.
Escalate your complaint
If you’re not satisfied with the response you receive at the advice centre, you can escalate your complaint to Affinity’s internal Compliance Office by completing our Problem Resolution form. The role of our Compliance Office is to review your complaint and attempt to resolve the matter fairly. You can expect to receive acknowledgement of your complaint within 2 business days.
Statutory limitation periods for commencement of legal action continue to run while your complaint is being reviewed. This may impact your ability to pursue a future civil claim. You should consult a lawyer for advice regarding these time limits.
OBSI (Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investments)
We take concerns and feedback from our members very seriously. If you don’t receive a written response from Affinity within 90 days, or if you’re not satisfied with the final response from the Compliance Office, you may contact OBSI. You have up to 180 days after receiving the final response to submit your complaint to OBSI.
OBSI is Canada’s national, independent, not-for-profit dispute resolution service for consumers and small businesses who have a complaint they can’t resolve with their banking services or investment firm. The service is free of charge.
