Is there any way to report an accountant to CRA for filing wrong information on a tax return and later asking for more money to fix it?

You usually need to sign a tax return before it is sent to the CRA - so you would've had to sign off on this information yourself. The accountant will usually not hold any blame for submitting wrong information.

You’re accountable for any information submitted to the CRA on your behalf by a tax preparer. You signed it
The “ Dog ate my homework “ rule doesn’t apply with the Federal Government

If you make a mistake on your tax return, don’t panic. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is not going to rush out to your home and take you into tax custody. Instead, they have a procedure to follow that you can change your tax using tax calculator so you can change your tax return after filing and fix the mistake you’ve made.

If he is a CA, you could start with the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants.
I don't think the CICA operates anymore, since the CPA Canada merger

This is a civil dispute and the CRA will not intervene. You signed on the tax return so this is your responsibility. You can use a different accountant to amend your return, and take the previous one to small claims, which, without knowing the specifics of your case, is far to be a guarantee.
