Accountants of British Columbia’s (CPABC) convocation ceremony held on May
21, 2016 at the Vancouver Convention Centre in Vancouver.
Students recognized at the CPA convocation
ceremony have either become designated members of CPABC this year or will be
eligible for membership. A total of 768 students attended the convocation
“We welcome the newest Chartered Professional Accountants to the profession.
These students have earned their designations through rigorous training and
assessment of their business and accounting competencies,” said Olin Anton,
FCPA, FCA, chair of CPABC board of directors. “They represent the future of
the accounting profession in British Columbia, and I congratulate each and
every one of our new graduates. We welcome them to the ranks of B.C.’s
chartered professional accountants.”
To qualify as a CPA, students must complete rigorous course work, pass the
national Common Final Examination (CFE), and fulfill relevant practical
experience requirements. The national CFE ensures all Canadian chartered
professional accountants meet the same high standards, which are recognized
nationally and internationally.
