Students receiving this award must have demonstrated scholastic achievement and have an intent to enter the CPA professional education program (PEP) upon graduation.
The award is initially funded for three years at $1,500 per year.
Joanne Liu CPA CGA, chair of the CPABC Burnaby/New Westminster Chapter, said “Thank you members for supporting the chapter’s PD and social networking activities.” She added, “your support of these chapter activities is what made this award possible.”
The award will be officially announced at a CPAEF Award Recipients luncheon on September 10, 2019.
