Over 120 of Canada’s newest CPAs are Concordians

John Molson alumnus achieves highest standing in Quebec on Common Final Examination
December 4, 2018


Nearly 1,200 Quebec candidates passed the September 2018 Chartered Professional Accountancy Common Final Examination (CFE); 121 were students of the John Molson School of Business’s Graduate Diploma in Chartered Professional Accountancy Program.

Passing the CFE is the final step required to obtain the CPA designation. It is a three-day examination that evaluates candidates on the competencies defined by the CPA Canada Competency Map

CPA Canada also announced that John Molson alumnus Michael V. Richardson earned the Gold Medal for Quebec and a $2,500 cash prize from CPA Canada for the highest standing in Quebec. Another graduate of Concordia's undergraduate accountancy program, Patrick Pilotte, was named to the CPA Canada Honour Roll.

“I would like to congratulate all of our successful CPA candidates,” says John Molson Dean Anne-Marie Croteau. “Accountancy has long been a strength of Concordia and this year’s CFE results confirm that we are among the top choices for aspiring CPAs in the country.”
