President's Message

The London CPA Ontario Association is lead by a group of 11 volunteers from a variety of industries and we serve more than 3,000 CPAs in the London region. We do this by providing professional development and networking opportunities for our members.

For the 2019 year, we’re particularly excited to be involved in the Tax Preparation Assistance Program (TPA). The TPA program provides free tax preparation assistance to modest income Ontarians and has done so for more than 50 years.

In 2018, more than 25,000 returns were filed under the program; if this number wasn’t impressive enough, consider that it represents nearly 10% of the total number of e-Filed returns in Ontario. The program helps families get access to invaluable tax refunds and credits that are only available if an income tax return is filed. We’re hoping 2019s program will top last years and we’re looking for CPAs willing to volunteer their expertise to provide a valuable service to Londoners and the surrounding communities. By participating in the program, you will in a very tangible way improve the lives of those most in need. Join us and volunteer today by visiting

Please feel free to reach out to me if there’s anything you’d like to discuss about the London CPA Ontario Association and the work we’re doing.

With thanks,
