It highlights that transparency is essential for regulators to honour public interest, to educate the public, to increase accountability and to help the regulator become aware of issues that might not have otherwise been apparent.

In Mema v Chartered Professional Accountants of Alberta, 2020 ABQB 486, http://canlii.ca/t/j99mc, the practitioner was registered in both Alberta and British Columbia. Allegations of misconduct arose primarily in respect of conduct in British Columbia. Regulators in both provinces received complaints of similar misconduct. It appears that the Alberta regulator proceeded first and that the regulator in British Columbia was awaiting the outcome in Alberta.
