President's Message

Welcome to the Hamilton CPA Ontario Association! Our Association is led by 17 CPA volunteers across all legacy designations, industries and experience levels. With more than 3,000 CPAs in the area, our purpose is to provide ongoing networking and professional development for our members who support large to small businesses, institutions and individuals. Further, we have a long standing tradition in providing scholarships to graduate accounting students from local colleges and universities.

While the Hamilton Association area officially covers Hamilton, Brantford, Haldimand and Norfolk County, we also draw from the Halton and Niagara regions as both committee members and event attendees.

Our events are held once a month at The Scottish Rite Club in Hamilton, which includes free parking and is wheelchair accessible! This is an easy and exciting way to obtain your CPD hours and meet new people, as well as an opportunity to learn, network and participate in Q&A.

I look forward to your participation in the Hamilton CPA Ontario Association. Should you have any ideas for programs and topics or any other comments or suggestions, please feel free to contact me, so that it can be considered for future discussion and event planning.

You’ve made it this far, so please take the next step and join us at one of our events. All you have to risk is a few hours of your time and you will have so much to gain — new skills and new connections. We look forward to seeing you at future meetings and events.

Yours sincerely,
Peter Swire's Signature
Peter Swire, CPA, CMA
