Member Recognition Program

CPA Nova Scotia recognizes outstanding contributions to our profession.

The CPA Nova Scotia Member Recognition Awards stand out as symbols of genuine appreciation in a world where a pat on the back sometimes just doesn't cut it. 

Do you have someone in mind who has made significant strides over the past five years? Perhaps they actively engage in community service, guiding young CPAs as mentors, or demonstrate innovation, bringing prestige to the CPA profession. If so, nominate them for an award today! CPA Nova Scotia takes pride in honoring members for their exemplary leadership and contributions to both the profession and their communities. 

Nomination forms for awards are now available year-round. The deadline for submitting nominations this year is May 3rd at 4:00pm. The results of the nomination process will be announced publicly at the end of June. The Member Awards Dinner will happen October 4, 2024 at the Lord Nelson Hotel in Halifax.
