Ontario accountants promote their brand

Who says accountants lack imagination? Certified General Accountants of Ontario, the self-governing regulatory body, is giving away more than $40,000 to postsecondary students who visit its new, catchy and interactive web site at and enter its monthly $2,500 draw.

The giveaways are part of a Do More campaign to promote the value of a Certified General Accountant (CGA) designation.

“If you want a career in accounting beyond audit and tax, a CGA takes you there,” says Delmarie Scherloski, CGA Ontario’s Vice-President of Marketing and Communications. “It opens doors to rewarding business careers that involve expertise in financial risk management, efficiency, productivity and more.”

The CGA hopes the campaign will attract more people to the profession.
