Former Certified Financial Planner (CFP), July 1997. I live in the province of Quebec and Quebec forbids the use of this designation as it has its own association which regulates the use of the term "Financial Planner". As a result, I no longer use or subscribe to this professional association. I look forward to the day when the two associations can agree on some kind of merger so that this designation can be used in this province.
Former Certified Management Accountant (CMA), March 1996. The AMF considers this profession to be in conflict
with offering mutual funds and I no longer practice accounting so for these two reasons, I gave up this designation.
Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA), St. Mary's University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, 1982. Bachelor of Arts (Honors) in French from St. Thomas University, Fredericton, New Brunswick where I won two academic awards: 1) The Dr. Marguerite Michaud prize for studies in French Canadian literature and 2) The Romance Department prize for studies in linguistics.
BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE
I have been in the financial services sector since 1993. Prior to that I worked for the federal government as a budget administrator and internal auditor. This followed several years as a comptroller for a medium-sized firm and several years with KPMG as an accountant/auditor.
