Campbell River chartered accountant students excel

To become a CA, students must complete rigorous course work, pass the UFE, and work for 30 months in a CA firm

Two Campbell River CA students: Karen Stewart (Chan Nowosad Boates) and Marlo Zimmerman (Chan Nowosad Boates) passed the national Uniform Evaluation (UFE), the Institute of Chartered Accountants of BC (ICABC) and the CA School of Business (CASB) announced.

A total of 409 BC writers successfully completed the exam, which was written over three days in September.

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, FCA, 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, FCA, interim CEO of the CA School of Business.

The CA School of Business (CASB) develops and delivers a competency-based learning program for university graduates seeking to become chartered accountants (CAs) in Western Canada. Acting on behalf of, and in collaboration with, the four provincial CA institutes in Western Canada, CASB ensures that its graduates possess the superior financial expertise, business insight, strategic planning, and leadership required to become business-ready CAs.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of British Columbia is the training, governing and regulatory body of B.C.’s almost 11,000 members and just over 1,800 CA students.

The Institute carries out its primary mission to protect the public by enforcing the most demanding admission criteria and the highest professional and ethical standards.

Thanks to the quality and rigour of their education and training, CAs are recognized internationally for bringing superior financial expertise, strategic thinking, business insight and leadership to organizations.
