Media Advisory: Niagara and Hamilton Students Finding out a Future as a CA has No Limits

Featured speaker is Debbie Sevenpifer of the Niagara Health System

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 11, 2009) - A select group of Niagara Region and Hamilton high school students are getting an exclusive look into the many opportunities available in the world of business at the No Limits conference being hosted by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario on May 13. Approximately 120 students, nominated by their schools for their leadership skills and interest in university business programs, will be attending this daylong session. This is the first No Limits conference to be held in Niagara Region and one of just four being held during the 2008-09 school year.

The No Limits conference brings Chartered Accountants from Niagara's top businesses together with students most likely to be tomorrow's successful business professionals. During No Limits, the students will get the chance to meet CAs and discuss the many opportunities that open up for people who achieve the prestigious CA designation.

Among the day's highlights will be a presentation by Debbie Sevenpifer, President and CEO of the Niagara Health System Board of Trustees. In March 2000 the Niagara Health System was created as a full amalgamation of eight hospitals - three large community hospitals, three smaller rural hospitals, one specialty complex care hospital and one outpatient rehabilitation centre. She'll be joined by 13 CA role models from diverse employers including accounting firms, Urquhart Forensics, John Deere Credit Canada, Brock University and other organizations.
