RECOGNIZE EXCELLENCE - NOMINATE A CPA

CPAs are known for high ethical standards, strategic insights and their capacity to identify solutions to complex issues in today’s business world. Each year, CPA Ontario seeks to honour select members who exemplify these attributes.

The distinction of Fellow formally recognizes CPAs who have rendered exceptional service to the profession and in their communities. Our distinguished past Fellows are world-class CPAs that span numerous sectors and industries, demonstrating the breadth and depth of the profession. What makes a Fellow is their brilliant career contributions and their roles vary widely from Partners and CFOs to entrepreneurs, academics, and leaders of international brands. 

We encourage our members to nominate a deserving CPA – across all industries and sectors.

The deadline to submit nominations is Wednesday, July 31, 2019. All nominees and nominators will be notified by October and the celebration of new FCPAs will be held at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) in Toronto on Tuesday, December 3. 

For more information about the nomination process, please email Member Network.
