These students make up the final cohort of the CGA program and have earned their designations through rigorous training and assessment of their business and accounting competencies,” said Dave Hallinan, FCPA, FCMA, chair of CPABC board of directors.

“They represent the future of the accounting profession in British Columbia, and I congratulate each and every one of our new graduates. We welcome them to the ranks of B.C.’s chartered professional accountants.”
