CPA Nova Scotia celebrates first in-person convocation ceremony in two years!

Our 2021 Convocation and Awards Ceremony was held on Saturday, May 14, 2022, at the Halifax Convention Centre.
Graduates were recognized for the completion of their education, and new members were welcomed into membership.

Opening remarks and address were provided by President and CEO, Patti Towler, followed by a toast by
Chair of the CPA Nova Scotia Board, Jamie O’Neil, CPA, CA. The Valedictorian address was delivered by Alison Carpenter, CPA.

"The common final examination, the CFE, is a rigorous three-day examination that evaluates students on the competencies
defined by the competency map, which outlines the knowledge, skills and proficiency levels required to be a Canadian CPA.
At convocation, we celebrate those who have successfully passed the CFE since it is the most significant step toward
obtaining the CPA designation,"
remarked Patti Towler.

With more than 600 members, guests, and graduates in attendance, it was a memorable evening.

During the reception, guests had the opportunity to mingle with one another and get their picture taken with a photo wall and 360-degree camera.
Additionally, a photo booth was in place throughout the evening to commemorate the celebrations with friends and family.
After enjoying the ceremony and dinner together, attendees danced the night away with True North DJs providing musical entertainment.

Thank you to all the presenters, employers and all the guests who attended our Convocation!
