Small Practices Advisory Committee 

In May 2007, the Small Practices Advisory Committee was formed to provide a voice for small practitioners.


The objectives of the Small Practices Advisory Committee are to:

  • provide a forum for identifying and addressing the common needs of members in small practices;
  • promote the interests of members in small practices within the overall profession;
  • encourage active participation of members in small practices in shaping the future of the profession; and
  • look for opportunities to attract members to small practices.


Resources For Small Practices

The Small Practices Advisory Committee works with CPA Ontario to develop practical resources to assist small practices to communicate their values and specific expertise.  A customizable brochure has been developed for CPA firms to use to market their practices. Find out more today!
