Robert Andrews

Robert Andrews, CPA, CMA is no stranger when it comes to creating an impact. As the Executive Director for the Aboriginal Financial Officers Association of Alberta (AFOA Alberta), he has worked tirelessly to support Indigenous people who wish to join the business and accounting professions or enhance their management practices to improve their communities. He is a passionate mentor, educator and leader who has worked hard to build stronger ties between the CPA profession and Alberta’s Indigenous students, while creating learning opportunities for those interested in accounting. Over the years, he has achieved remarkable success in his commitment to strengthening diversity and inclusivity in the profession.

Creating those types of opportunities is at the heart of the CPA Education Foundation’s mission, and Robert’s commitment to helping the Foundation achieve its goals is unparalleled. He was not only instrumental in the success of No Limits – the Foundation’s recent initiative to provide information and support to Indigenous peoples in Alberta interested in pursuing careers in business and accounting – but also in raising awareness in the CPA community of the obstacles faced by Indigenous peoples seeking educational and career opportunities.

Whether it’s through his leadership and support of the Foundation, or his work as an educator and advocate for Indigenous learners and communities, Robert is a committed, passionate, and visionary leader in the CPA profession, and has been an inspiration to many.

The CPA Education Foundation congratulates him on his successful nomination as the 2021 Impact Award recipient.
