Last Saturday, the Ordre des comptables agréés du Québec honoured 16 members who were awarded the prestigious FCA title in recognition of their exceptional contribution to the profession and their communities.

Over 200 guests gathered at the Hyatt Regency Montreal to pay tribute to a colleague, friend or family member during an impressive ceremony hosted by actress Sophie Faucher.

Ordre chair Alain Côté, FCA, praised the new FCAs as follows: "Dynamic, committed and competent are words that best describe FCAs and, as such, each of them has made a unique contribution to their profession and community."

"We continue the tradition by officially welcoming these new FCAs to this elite group. They are now models of excellence for us all!" commented Daniel McMahon, FCA, President and CEO of the Ordre.
