Call for Nominations: Board of Electors

Nominations are welcomed from leaders of accounting associations, regulatory bodies, accounting firms, professional accountants and the general public.


The Canadian Accounting Hall of Fame (CAHF) recognizes and honours individuals who have made significant contributions to the development of the Canadian accounting profession or, as Canadians, have made contributions to the development of accounting elsewhere in the world. These contributions may have been in practice (including assurance, financial reporting, management accounting, taxation, corporate governance, and accounting related consultancy), through professional associations, regulatory bodies, or through academic pursuits. In addition to its role in recognizing individual contributions, the CAHF is conceived as a curated biographical history of accounting in Canada. This resource will benefit students and practitioners in developing their understanding of accounting in Canada, and reinforces the role that accounting has played, and continues to play, in the development of Canadian society.


Nominations should be submitted no later than November 8, 2024. Mailed nominations postmarked by this date will be accepted.

Nominations for the Board of Electors

The following are the criteria for appointment to the CAHF Board of Electors:

(a) Willingness to advance the interests of the CAHF;

(b) A national or international reputation in accounting;

(c) Contribute to diversity within the Board of Electors, as much as possible, on geographic location within Canada, competence in Canada’s official languages, functional specialty within accounting, and gender; and

(d) Active nominees to the CAHF are not eligible to serve as Electors, but Inductees are eligible to serve as Electors.

The nomination should document how the nominee meets these criteria.

Members of the Board of Electors will generally serve staggered terms of three years each, but the initial members may be appointed for 1, 2 or 3-year terms to establish this pattern.
