About Our Chapter
A review of the government of Canada NUANS report indicates that “The Canadian Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE) Inc.” (domiciled in Willowdale, Ontario) was created under the Canadian Business Corporations Act on September 30, 1991. This appears to be the first instance of an ACFE chapter in the Toronto area. (This registration was removed on March 1, 2000 in anticipation of a pending approval of an Ontario corporation noted in the following paragraph).
On November 18, 1999, an application for a proposed non-share corporation titled “ACFE Toronto Chapter Inc.” was received by the government of Ontario Companies Branch. This application was approved on March 9, 2000 as a non-share, non-profit entity under the Province of Ontario, assigned Corporation Number 1387030.
The ACFE Toronto Chapter Inc. was renamed the “Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Chapter” on March 9, 2019 by the Ontario Ministry of Government and Consumer Services after a resolution authorizing this change was confirmed by the Board of Directors on January 23, 2019.
The ACFE-GTA Chapter is registered with the Canada Revenue Agency for remittance of the Canadian Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) under the Business Name of "ACFE - GTA Chapter" and an HST #: 131433971.
The Chapter is affiliated with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Inc., and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (A Non-Profit Corporation), both of Austin, Texas, (www.acfe.com).
The Chapter provides Continuing Professional Education through training programs, seminars, webinars, conferences, networking, and outreach presentations to Certified Fraud Examiners. We have outreach programs for local universities and colleges, and where practicable, assist in educating citizens on topics concerning fraud awareness.
The Chapter maintains and builds upon its affiliation with the ACFE Global Headquarters in Austin, Texas; is committed to mutual cooperation with the ACFE Chapters in Canada and other like-minded professional associations; and partners with organizations and businesses, as well as colleges and universities to assist with Fraud Examination and Investigation Programs and provide career advisory help for students.
