Ethical decision-making is a critical part of the accounting profession.

This four-hour CPA Ontario Ethics Summit will include inspiring presentations to help guide your decision-making with objectivity and integrity. As disruption becomes our new normal, advisors and consultants will increasingly be faced with ethical conflicts in sensitive financial situations. CPAs must remain focused on their ethical responsibilities both within organizations or when dealing with clients.
