Disciplinary Actions

Where an FP Canada™ certificant is found to have breached the Standards of Professional Responsibility, an FP Canada Standards Council Discipline Hearing Panel can impose discipline sanctions ranging from a letter of admonishment to suspension or revocation of certification.

In accordance with the FP Canada Standards Council Policy on the Publication of Disciplinary Information, all decisions issued by a Hearing or Appeal Panel are published on FP Canada’s website. A certificant’s disciplinary history is also linked to the Find a Planner or Certificant tool on FP Canada’s website and a publicly accessible, historically searchable database is maintained by FP Canada.
