Changing of the guard


“THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’,” sang Bob Dylan. And indeed they are. Alain Côté, FCPA, FCA, assumed the role of


chair of the CPA Canada Board of Directors and Terry LeBlanc, FCPA, FCGA, became the new vice-chair on Sept. 30, 2015. Côté was chair of the Ordre des comptables agréés


du Québec from 2009 to 2011 and, since September 2014, has been vice-chair of the CPA Canada board. Moncton-based LeBlanc was a two-time chair of the CGA-Canada board and held senior positions with the Canada Revenue Agency from 1977 to 2010. Kevin Dancey, FCPA, FCA, has announced that as of May he will step down as CPA Canada president and CEO, a position he has held since January 2013. Dancey, who became president and CEO of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2006, played a key role in the unification of Canada’s accounting profession under the CPA designation.
