Dozen earn CA designation
A dozen Langley chartered accountants graduated from the CA School of Business program earlier this month.
Amanda Cliff (KPMG LLP), Omar Visram (KPMG LLP), William Dos Santos (d’Abadie Moody), Riley Lefebvre (Grant Thornton LLP), Jon Morrison (Deloitte & Touche LLP), Eva Soppit (BDO Canada LLP), Gregory Vandergaag (Grant Thornton LLP), Kyle McElwee (Davidson & Company LLP), Desiree Friesen (BDO Canada LLP), Ankur Merwaha (BDO Canada LLP), Joanne Lee (Deloitte & Touche LLP) and Ramil Rodriguez (Atlas Sign & Awning Co.). Students recognized at the convocation ceremony are eligible for membership in the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C. this year.
“The CA designation is earned through the completion of a detailed and exacting educational program, designed to ensure high levels of business and accounting competencies,” said Richard Rees, FCA, CEO of the Chartered Accountants of British Columbia.
To qualify as a CA, students must have a university degree or equivalent, 30 months of practical work experience in a chartered accountancy firm, and complete courses through the CA Qualification Program. CAs must also pass a comprehensive rigorous national final exam to earn their designation.
