In order to resolve a disciplinary proceeding before a Panel of CPABC’s Disciplinary Committee concerning professional misconduct alleged against him, Joey Wayne Mak has agreed to the voluntary suspension of his enrollment as a student of the Organization of Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (“CPABC”) for a period of 12 months, between June 11, 2021 and June 10, 2022.

Mr. Mak has irrevocably admitted to breaching numerous provisions of the CPABC Code of Professional Conduct, by submitting a false and misleading application for membership in CPABC that failed to disclose that he had plagiarized an assignment in the CPA Professional Education Program; deceiving two members of CPABC who had signed Mr. Mak’s false and misleading application for membership in CPABC; lying to CPABC’s professional staff about why he had made a false and misleading application for membership in CPABC; and, making a false and misleading statement to the CPA Western School of Business.

During the 12 month period of the suspension of Mr. Mak’s enrollment as a student of CPABC, he will be ineligible to apply for membership in CPABC or in any other provincial CPA body.
