Complaints Statement to Members

We try to get everything right the first time......but if we don’t, please tell us about it. Of course we hope that you NEVER have cause to complain about our services, but if you do, we have a complaints procedure.


Complaints Procedure

We aim to offer our members consistent, high quality and value for money services. We can only do this with your help. If we have let you down, please tell us.
If you make a complaint we believe that you deserve six things:

  • An apology
  • To be heard
  • Action as soon as possible
  • To be understood
  • To be respected
  • An explanation


A complaint is defined as:
Any expression of dissatisfaction whether oral or written and whether justified or not, from or on behalf of an eligible complainant about Health Care Credit Union’s provision of, or failure to provide, one of its financial services activities.


Our commitment to you

We aim to deal with your complaint as thoroughly and as quickly as possible. We will keep you informed if your complaint cannot be dealt with by the close of business the day after your complaint is received at the Credit Union.


Your first steps

You MUST give the Credit Union a chance to resolve any complaint before taking your issue further.


The best way to complain depends how the situation arose. If you are already dealing with a staff member then contact that person or their supervisor directly,  either by telephone or by letter. You could also make an appointment to see them in person. Many complaints are due to a misunderstanding and can often be resolved instantly. If you have followed these guidelines and are still unhappy, please address your complaint directly to the Complaints Officer in care of Health Care Credit Union or via email to info@healthcarecu.ca Attention: Complaints Officer.


Tips on making a written complaint

  • Include your full name, address and any reference or Membership number, at the top of the letter
  • The date you made your complaint (you can then monitor the time it takes to receive a response)
  • Write a brief summary of your complaint at the beginning of your letter
  • List the facts clearly and in a sensible order of events
  • Do not go into too much detail and try not to be repetitive
  • Send photocopies of any relevant documents – but be sure to keep the originals
  • Keep a photocopy of every letter or email you write


We Will

  • Investigate your complaint immediately.
  • Acknowledge receipt of your complaint by the close of business the following day. If appropriate we will also offer an apology and a full explanation at this time.
  • Try to resolve the complaint within 30 days, but if we need more time we will let you know.
  • If we cannot resolve the issue, or need more time to investigate, we will tell you when you can expect a response and keep you advised of the progress.
  • Resolve your complaint within a maximum period of 60 days.


If you are still unhappy

In the majority of cases, complaints can be resolved very quickly and to everyone’s satisfaction. If not you can take your complaint to the Complaints Officer. This person has special responsibility for complaints within the Credit Union. They will undertake an independent review on your behalf and provide you with a written response according to the aforementioned time-scale. If your complaint has been taken through the Credit Union’s Internal Complaints procedure and you are dissatisfied with the final response letter, you may be able to take your complaint to the Financial Service Commission of Ontario.


We promise to investigate and will endeavour to resolve any issues you may have, as quickly as possible.
