Let’s celebrate the service of outstanding CPA Ontario volunteers who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence through community service and volunteering their time and effort.

Examples of ways our members give back are through mentoring students during practical experience, being an ambassador for the designation via local associations, or volunteering at a Tax Preparation clinic.

Application Deadline: We are no longer accepting applications for this award. Recipients will be announced in April 2019.


At this time, members cannot nominate themselves for this award. The nomination process must be completed by your peer/colleague and include examples of your impact.

Nominees must:

  • Be a member of CPA Ontario in good standing
  • Be currently serving CPA Ontario in a volunteer capacity
  • Activities highlighted are unpaid – no compensation


  • Must have known the nominee for a minimum of two years
  • Can demonstrate, with examples, how the nominee has met the criteria
  • May not be employed by CPA Ontario or currently a member of the Selection Committee or a relative of the nominee
  • Do NOT need to be a member of CPA Ontario

If multiple nominations for the same person are received only the first nomination will be reviewed. Only one nominator name is permitted, but nominators are welcomed to team up to write an application to avoid multiple nominations for the same person.

Please note: Employees of CPA Ontario or members of the Selection Committee are not eligible to nominate OR win this award.


Up to five winners will be featured on our website during national volunteer week, April 7-13, 2019 and will receive a congratulatory package that will include a letter from our executive team, a signature piece to recognize their accomplishments, and receive invitations to premium CPA Ontario events.

Once award recipients have been approved by the Selection Committee, they will be contacted directly by the Member Experience department. For unsuccessful nominations, the nominator will receive an email.
