GTA CHAPTER HISTORY
“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 Canada. 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 Inc.” (ACFE-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. In 2023, "ACFE-GTA Chapter" was registered with the provincial government as an "operating as" name.
