VANCOUVER, February 15, 2023 — For the fourth consecutive year, the Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC) has been recognized as one of B.C.’s Top Employers.
“I am proud of every individual at CPABC, because this recognition honours the collective efforts of our entire team. CPABC continues to foster a collaborative, supportive culture that celebrates diversity in talent and individuality, and every employee helps this culture thrive,” said Lori Mathison, FCPA, FCGA, LLB, president and CEO of CPABC. “CPABC is unquestionably driven by its diverse mix of people and the individual merits they all bring to the table.”
Key features in CPABC’s Top Employer recognition were its ongoing support of professional development and its hybrid work culture, which ensures organizational performance while providing flexibility for individuals.

“It’s important to continue to foster awareness of the diverse voices and key issues in the world we live in, and to step up and positively impact our communities when we can. We want our employees to give back, and we want the organization to give back,” stated Mathison.
Employers on the B.C.
