The Emerging Leader Award recognizes the outstanding business and social contributions of Ontario’s CPAs, aged 34 and under.

Emerging Leaders chart their own paths, cultivate an atmosphere where innovation thrives, and elevate the accounting profession. They bring strategic thinking and solutions to the challenges Ontario’s economy faces, while also contributing to the greater good of our province through social endeavors.
