Employer Info Session: Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC)

February 8, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Event Overview

Have you ever wondered about working in a dynamic industry as a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA)? There are many CPAs who have interesting and lucrative careers with non-business degrees.


The Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC) is hosting its annual Discover CPA event for non-business students who are interested in becoming a CPA but do not have a business-related background. This event will feature a panel of CPAs who did not study business prior to pursuing their CPA path. Students who attend can hear why they became CPAs and how they did it. Attendees will also receive an overview of the CPA profession and get a chance to network with panelists following the moderated panel discussion.
