A few years ago I picked up the Personal Tax Planning booklet at my friendly neighbourhood library and found it to be invaluable in highlighting a number areas of the Income Tax Act that made filling out the tax return forms easier and so much better informed! I pick up this book every year now and read it from cover to cover. Thank you so much for this important guide!

I have received six referrals for U.S. taxation from CGA Ontario's accountant referral service in the last three months. Recently, I received a call from a U.S. citizen from California who plans to move to Ontario. We have spoken several times and I provided advice on what actions he should take for tax purposes in the United States before moving to Canada. He indicated that he would like to continue to use my services to prepare both his Canadian and United States tax returns after he settles in Canada . This call surprised me more than any other because this person was calling from the United States and had never been to Canada. We talked about the CGA designation and how it compared to the CPA designation. This shows me how there are no borders where the Internet is concerned; people from all over the world visit CGA Ontario's website.
Thanks to all those at CGA Ontario who develop and maintain our website. It is a wonderful resource for members as well as for the general public.

It was only on a recent visit to the accountant referral service housed on CGA Ontario's website that I realized the great exposure provided to CGAs via this section. I think it's great! I received my first call from a public accounting firm who used our online accountant referral service to obtain my contact information from the subsection, Retail Sales Tax. Thank you!

I would like to thank Sheila Shewchuk, CGA Ontario's student adviser, for her personable and understanding insight, and for providing a realistic and reasonable proposal to my student concerns. I also appreciated her persistance in returning my phone call.
I hope CGA Ontario realizes and recognizes Sheila as an invaluable member on its staff.

Our volunteer board was in need of a treasurer and just before Christmas I posted our need for a treasurer on your website. We were overwhelmed by the immediate response. Thank you for this wonderful service.

"CGA Ontario’s employment referral service provides a concentrated listing of current accounting and finance-related positions available. It allowed me direct contact with employers seeking to fill vacancies in their organizations, instead of depending on placement agencies to make my case."

"It [the employment referral service] has always provided me with qualified individuals for the specific jobs that I have posted. I do not waste time receiving unqualified resumés. I believe that from the last few positions we have posted on [CGA Ontario's] website, we have done all our hiring from the résumés that we received from the CGA."
