On February 6, 2020, the CPABC Vancouver Chapter proudly celebrated over 60 successful CFE finalists who wrote the Common Final Exam (CFE) this past September.

A total of 1003 BC and Yukon finalists passed this 3 day exam including several hundred from the Vancouver area. There were 10 BC students who also made the National Honour Roll with two students coming from Vancouver.

This inaugural celebratory event was held at the Brewhall Pub in Vancouver’s trendy Olympic Village to honour candidates who recently wrote and passed their CFE.  This social networking event provided CFE grads an opportunity to meet fellow finalists, CPA members, and other students and candidates. And to enjoy their recent exam success.
