About Our Chapter

The purpose of the Chapter is to help reduce the incidence of fraud and other financial crimes by (a) delivering best-in-class training and education to Certified Fraud Examiners, (b) fostering a dynamic and interactive local network of anti-fraud professionals, and (c) encouraging the next generation of anti-fraud professionals. The catchment area of the Chapter includes the Greater Toronto Area, Hamilton and the Golden Horseshoe Area, Southwestern Ontario, and Northwestern Ontario.

The Chapter maintains and builds upon its affiliation with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, Inc., (a for-profit corporation registered in the state of Texas, USA), and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (a Non-Profit Corporation registered in the state of Texas, USA ( The Chapter is committed to cooperation with the other ACFE Chapters in Canada. The Chapter also connects with like-minded professional associations involved in the training and provision of networking opportunities to their respective members.

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 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 (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.

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.
