West Kelowna bookkeeper earns her certification

Samantha Martin has been awarded her certification as a professional bookkeeper from The Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada.

Martin owns her own company, Accountability Bookkeeping.

The IPBC’s national mandate is to institute professional standards specifically for the Canadian bookkeeping profession.

“More than 60,000 Canadians hang out their shingle as a ‘bookkeeper,’ yet competency in that industry ranges from stellar to mediocre,” said Gordon Skillen, executive director of IPBC.

“Who is the best professional to do the important compliance work required by law of business owners? There are millions of business owners across Canada who depend on the services of a bookkeeper. Business owners and employers will come to demand the CPB designation.”

Martin earned the national CPB designation after passing an exhaustive two-hour closed book exam.
