OPTIMIZING GOVERNANCE TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC

CPA Ontario is continuing to build on its recent governance enhancements. The election process helps identify candidates with skills and attributes that will bring additional breadth and scope to Council’s current skill set and enhance its ability to provide strategic, forward-looking leadership and guidance. Those candidates whose skills and attributes align with these objectives will be identified by Council. We believe that by taking a considered and strategic approach to the Council election process, we are able to best protect the public interest.

CPA Ontario seeks nominations from candidates that reflect the diversity of its membership. Council has prioritized the following five skills and attributes to support the strategic objectives of the organization. This year, there are five seats up for election.
