The CPABC Vancouver Technology Forum has made a generous pledge of $5,000 to the CPA Education Foundation of BC (CPAEF) towards bursaries to support CPA students and candidates.

For over two decades, the Forum has generously donated its annual Professional Development surplus to the Foundation.  Thanks to the activities of the Forum and the generosity of its members, many dozens of CPA students and candidates have received bursaries which they have used to acquire new computers and hardware to support their educational pursuit.

Louis Fourie CPA CGA, chair of the Forum, said, “the awards are a real important outcome for our group.”  He added, “we’re delighted to be able to support the next generation of CPAs.”

You can make a donation to the CPAEF and direct it to the Vancouver Technology Fund by contacting David Chiang, CPA CA, CPABC’s vice-president member advice and programs.  Or, if you would like to join the Forum as a member, visit the Member Forums page on the CPABC website.
