Kristine Simpson, FCPA, FCA

Kristine is a partner with BDO Canada and the BC industry leader of the firm’s not-for-profit and education practice, which has grown from one to five partners during her tenure.

A sought-after expert known for her exceptional dedication to quality, service, and helping others, Kristine delivers transformational advice to a variety of organizations across the province. The profound impact of her work is most evident in the non-profit housing sector, where her recommendations for financial transparency, oversight, and reporting practices have resulted in substantial changes.

Also known for her commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, Kristine contributed to the formation of BDO’s National Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Council and continues to support and mentor the career advancement of female CPAs.

In the community, she has volunteered extensively within the Chamber of Commerce network, including serving as a board director and chair of BC Chamber of Commerce. In the latter role, Kristine spearheaded a strategic plan that rebranded the organization, modernized its service delivery, and recruited a diverse membership, while also maintaining key services to small businesses during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Kristine’s unique background as a CPA professional combined with her experience in the charitable and housing sectors is a magical hat-trick that we at Lookout—and the non-profit sector in general—benefit from greatly. She uses her accounting and auditing background to help us get on the right path and stay there.”
