Thirteen BC students made the National Honour Roll. For a full listing of successful BC-based UFE writers, organized by location, see http://results.casb.com/ufe/index.html.
“On behalf of the Institute’s Council, I would like to congratulate these students for successfully passing the UFE,” said Gordon Holloway, president of the ICABC. “We welcome them to the ranks of chartered accountants.”
To become a CA, students must complete rigorous course work, pass the UFE, and work for 30 months in a CA firm. The national UFE ensures all Canadian CAs meet the same high standards, which are recognized nationally and internationally.
“Congratulations to the 1,007 successful UFE writers in Western Canada. We are proud of their accomplishments. Each has demonstrated that they possess the skills and competencies expected of new CAs. We look forward to welcoming them into the profession,” said Scott Palmer, interim CEO of the CA School of Business.
