I cannot express the immense feeling of relief and elation at the news that I had passed the CFE, as well as the great sense of pride and achievement for making the National Honour Roll. I would like to thank a few individuals that helped me reach this significant milestone, starting with Robert Schulz and Phil Davidson who helped me learn to approach business cases and problems with an open mindset. I would like to thank Wayne Irvine for all of the support and education during my last few years of university. I also need to mention my CFE mentor, Adnan Fidai for helping me through the CFE process, giving me the confidence I needed for the exam. Finally, I would like to thank KPMG for all of the support that afforded me the opportunity to perform at my best and make the National Honour Roll.”

“I have no words for how honoured I am to have been named to the National Honour Roll. It took years of hard work to get here and I am so grateful that my effort has culminated in this achievement. There are many people whose kind words, advice, and encouragement made all the difference in this journey. Thank you to my family, friends, coworkers, and CFE mentor for all your support—I truly couldn’t have done this without you.”

After the initial shock of hearing that I had been named to the National Honour Roll subsided, I was filled with a sense of relief that I had passed and gratitude for all those who had supported me on my CFE journey.  Passing this exam is a significant milestone on the path to becoming a CPA and I'm so proud of myself and all of the successful 2022 CFE writers for our hard work and perseverance!

This accomplishment could not have been possible without the support and guidance of my family, friends, professors, and colleagues. Thank you all for your encouragement and advice!”

“[When I got the news] I was overwhelmed with emotion. Studying for the CFE is such a mental game, I was so focused on just passing the exam, let alone scoring high enough to be on the National Honour Roll. Now that I’ve processed it, I am so unbelievably thrilled!

I am so grateful to have such a supportive husband and family who have helped me get through all the mental blockades during PEP and CFE prep. I also want to send out a huge thank you to all my mentors at RSM who guided me throughout my studying journey.”

Congratulations from CPA Western School of Business

Yuen Ip

By passing the Common Final Examination and completing the CPA Professional Education Program, you have reached significant accomplishments on your way to becoming a CPA. On behalf of everyone at the CPA Western School of Business, I extend warm congratulations to you for reaching this milestone. You’ve earned the recognition and congratulations you will receive in the coming days.

If it hasn’t happened already, your attention will shortly turn towards completing your term of practical experience and applying for membership with a provincial CPA body so you can add the CPA designation to your name. CPAWSB and provincial staff are available to help you should you need any assistance as you move from being a candidate to a member.

Please consider contributing to the education of students and candidates who seek to follow in your footsteps. Hundreds of dedicated people make the CPA certification program possible, including facilitators and session leaders, CPAWSB and provincial staff, and others who develop and deliver CPA education across Canada.

You will hear from us soon with opportunities to get involved, and we sincerely hope you think about being a part of the team that helps to deliver the education you have just finished.

First, however, this is your moment. Take the time to celebrate your accomplishments.
