Update: January 2021

Welcome to 2021!
Our annual fraud conference was a success. The "virtual" format made the conference more accessible to our nation wide members and speakers alike. We'd love to get your thoughts.

The ACFI is strengthening its relationships with Canadian universities and colleges in an effort to provide a seamless transition from school to practice for new members.

We encourage retiring members to become mentors to our new members so your institutional knowledge can be passed on to future generations. The ACFI is facilitating these relationships between its members.
We are also promoting our new and existing sponsors to raise their profiles and strengthen their relationship with our members, while keeping your costs reasonable.
We have added new members to our Board (Dave Oswald, Allen Tait, & Varoujan Arman), and with them, new ideas. Of course the greatest source of new ideas is our membership, so we love to hear from you!
