Call for Council Nominations

Council seeks candidates to support strategic goals

A letter to CPA Ontario members from Jean Desgagné, Chair of Council, and Daniela Carcasole, Chair of the Governance & Nominating Committee:

Greetings to our CPA Ontario members. We are pleased to announce that nominations to Council are now open, with three seats up for election this year.

The pace and volume of change in our world and in our profession has only increased in the past year. Your Council is committed to keeping pace with these changes and ensuring it has the right skills to continually advance our profession.

This year Council has identified six priority skills, attributes and experiences:

  • Board and Governance Experience
  • Business Acumen
  • Emerging Technology
  • Risk Management
  • Future of the Profession / Learning
  • ESG / DE&I

More information on each of these can be found here.

Members in good standing who feel they can contribute to Council and our profession should consider nomination. Importantly, CPA Ontario continues to prioritize diversity and inclusion on Council and throughout the organization and profession. Lasting change can only happen if we all take continued action to address systemic racism and structural inequality, while creating opportunities for priority communities. As such, we encourage Council nominations for Indigenous peoples, racialized persons, women, 2SLGBTQ+ persons and persons with disabilities.

Note that the nomination process will close on July 29, 2022. The Annual General Meeting will be held on September 29, 2022.

As we begin the 2022 election process, we want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the contributions from our Council members elected in 2021: Daniela Carcasole, Tiffany Cecchetto, Michael Cherny, Chester Dawes and Paulina Molnar. As Council, we realize that you have placed your trust in us, and we look forward to working with you to help guide the profession.

For questions, please contact General Counsel Tom Litzgus by email or phone at 647 519.7518.
