Ten new Chartered Accountants in Northwestern Ontario


THUNDER BAY – There are ten new Chartered Accountants in Northwestern Ontario. This includes seven in Thunder Bay, one from Kakabeka Falls, one from Fort Frances and one from Dryden. The just-released results show these Northwestern Ontario Chartered Accounting students passed this year’s Canada-wide Uniform Evaluation (UFE), recognized as one of the world’s most challenging professional entry examinations.

The UFE, written in September, is a national three-day evaluation that assesses competencies including essential knowledge, professional judgment, ethics and the ability to communicate. The UFE is an important component of the CA qualification program, which includes prescribed education, practical experience and examination requirements. Only those who complete this entire program successfully are entitled to use the internationally recognized designation of Chartered Accountant, a profession known for superior financial expertise, strategic thinking, business insight and leadership.

In total, Ontario had 1,135 of the country’s 2,858 successful UFE writers and captured 18 of 52 National Honour roll spots. Juliana Yuen of Markham captured the Canada Gold Medal as the top writer of the Uniform Evaluation in the country.

The following Northwestern CA students successfully wrote the exam and, upon completion of their 30-month experience requirement, have earned the right to add the letters CA to their names:

“Congratulations to all of the successful candidates,” said Rod Barr, FCA, President and CEO, Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario. “Qualifying to become a CA is a very challenging process but the resulting career is rich in rewards and opportunities. I am confident that all of the students will make great contributions in their future careers and will uphold the high standards of the CA profession.”
