Scott Munro, FCPA, FCA

Since 2021, Scott has served as deputy CEO of the First Nations Financial Management Board (FMB), headquartered on Squamish Nation land (Xwemelch'stn) in West Vancouver, where he advances the causes of self-determination and economic reconciliation. He is Kaska Dena from the Yukon.

Scott advances the cause of First Nations economic development and self-determination by leading the standard-setting and certification activity that has allowed hundreds of First Nations to borrow much-needed capital (approximately $2 billion). Through regular speaking engagements, he also helps CPAs and other business leaders understand how they can advance reconciliation by responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.

Passionate about increasing Indigenous representation in the accounting profession, Scott played a pivotal role in the collaborative process that saw the FMB become the first BC Indigenous organization to deliver the CPA pre-approved program in 2023. This same cause inspired his involvement with the Public Sector Accounting Board, for which he’s currently completing his second term as vice-chair.

Also eager to make the profession more sustainable, Scott serves on CPA Canada’s Sustainability Advisory Committee. Through this role and his work at the FMB, Scott champions the integration of Indigenous considerations into international sustainability standard-setting. 

“Scott’s significant contributions to the accounting profession and advocacy for inclusion of Indigenous issues in standard-setting speak to his support for economic reconciliation for First Nations in the Canadian economy.”
