Nominate a CPA Ontario Fellow (FCPA)

CPAs are known for their high ethical standards, strategic insights and the capacity to identify solutions to complex issues in today’s business world. Each year, CPA Ontario honours select members who exemplify these attributes.

The distinction of Fellow (FCPA) formally recognizes CPAs who have rendered exceptional service to the profession and in their communities. An FCPA is more than an extra letter – it is the mark of a true leader, in the business world and beyond. Fellows embody the values that drive collaboration, innovation and progress – at a times when we need them most.

We encourage our members to nominate a deserving CPA – across all industries and sectors.

CPA Ontario Fellow nominations are now open

The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, July 30, 2021. All nominees and nominators will be notified by mid-October.

For more information about the nomination process, please email the FCPA inbox.


Nominees Thumb


All members of CPA Ontario, including those working outside Ontario, are eligible to become a Fellow. Nominees should be clearly identified as Chartered Professional Accountants (CPAs) and that they are known and recognized as CPAs.

The nominee should review the package and is required to sign off on the nomination. An electronic signature is accepted.

Nominators Thumb


Two nominators are required to nominate a candidate, and each must be a member of CPA Ontario (FCPA or CPA). Nominators are also required to include and write letters of support in nomination of the candidate.

To avoid any perceived conflict of interest, CPA Ontario employees and members of CPA Ontario’s Council are not permitted to nominate members or to be nominated to become a Fellow, but they are eligible once they have left the employ of CPA Ontario or have served their term on Council.
