President´s Statement

Dear RPA Members and Students,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to share exciting updates regarding the Society of Professional Accountants of Canada and to extend a warm invitation to our upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for October 21st this year.

Our RPA designation has been gaining significant recognition across various sectors, highlighting our commitment to excellence and innovation in accounting, finance, and management. This is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our members and students.

At this year’s AGM, we will gather to discuss key initiatives, celebrate our achievements, and outline the future potential of the accounting profession and RPA designation both local and international. Further details regarding the agenda and registration process, this year our AGM will be highlighting the challenging work of the RPA Ethics Committee under the leadership of Mr. Bob Finlay, RPA. RPA Canada will honor the RPA Ethics Committee members at the AGM. Mr. Stephen Crawford, MPP and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Finance will be the keynote speaker at the AGM.

As part of our Small Business Week Celebrations, we will be recognizing and honoring accomplished and successful women entrepreneurs with RPA Women Entrepreneur Awards. Hon. Rechie Valdez, MP and Federal Minister of Small Businesses; Hon. Nina Tangri, MPP and Associate Minister for Small Businesses; Hon. Charmaine Williams, MPP and Associate Minister of Women, Social and Economic Opportunity; Karen Vecchio, MP Elgin-Middlesex-London will be addressing the Small Business Week Celebration.

Looking ahead, we are enthusiastic about the opportunities that the coming year holds. Our collaborations with esteemed universities widely recognized in their respective countries such as Javeriana University, Algoma University and McMaster University is a testament that RPA designation is particularly rewarding, enriching our programs, and extending our reach. We are committed to fostering more such partnerships to provide enhanced value and opportunities for our members. RPA Canada has also launched the RPA Scholarship for Zambian female accounting students to obtain RPA designation.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to our board of directors, committees, members, and all students for their unwavering commitment to advancing the accounting profession. Your contributions are invaluable, and it is a privilege to serve alongside such a resolute community.

As we embark on the year ahead, I encourage you to stay connected, engage actively, and seize the opportunities that come your way. Together, we will continue to uphold the highest standards of professionalism and excellence in our profession.
