Kelowna students gain CA status

Total of 14 pass their evaluation test to become chartered accountants.

Fourteen Kelowna accounting students received their CA status this week from the Institute of the Chartered Accountants of B.C.

Passing their UFE (Uniform Evaluation) through the CA School of Business are: Mia Bent (Grant Thornton LLP), Alicia Brown (BDO Canada LLP), Megan Fraser (White Kennedy LLP),  Rebecca Getchey (MacKay LLP), Stuart Grant (BDO Canada LLP), Matthew Gustavson (MNP LLP), Jenica Isman (MNP LLP), Janelle Luini (Grant Thornton LLP), Jennifer Mendes (White Kennedy LLP), Kyle Robinson (KPMG LLP), Nathan Sauer (Adams Heymen Owen), Jason Solnik (Grant Thornton LLP), Candace Surette (MacKay LLP) and Erin Williamson (MNP LLP).

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.
