Legal remedies

Legal remedies are conducted through the courts to, among other things:

  • obtain financial compensation in cases where a CPA may have caused damages;
  • sanction the conduct of a CPA who has committed a penal or criminal act.

Important! You must inform the administrator of the professional liability insurance plan for Order members if you decide to bring legal proceedings against a CPA.1
