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 (below).

“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.
