President's Message

Welcome to the Niagara CPA Ontario Association! We are led by seven CPA volunteers, who work collaboratively to provide our members with high quality seminars, memorable recognition events, and meaningful social and networking opportunities. With nearly 1,600 CPA members in the Niagara Region, our mandate is to increase member engagement through various events and establish a forum where Niagara’s CPAs may connect. In addition to these programs and events, the Niagara CPA Ontario Association is proud to administer income tax clinics to seniors and low income families through our local libraries every February and March.

It’s an exciting time to be a CPA, and it’s my tremendous pleasure to be your president. Our events take place primarily in Grimsby, Niagara Falls, St. Catharines and Welland. If you enjoy having fun and connecting with your fellow CPAs, then I encourage you to join our committee, as we are actively looking for volunteers to assist us with our initiatives in 2017! If you have ideas for events, have feedback to share, or are looking to volunteer on the executive committee or income tax clinics, please feel free to contact me at any time at I look forward to seeing you at future meetings and events.

Yours sincerely,

Maria Collini, MBA, CPA, CGA
President, Niagara CPA Ontario Association
