The ONE national conference is on the east coast this year. Join 1,000 CPAs who are making a difference in business, accounting and finance, and don’t miss out on this unforgettable learning experience.

This year’s conference theme is Sustainability through adaptability.

With globalization, new technologies and the rise of significant environmental, social and political issues, business leaders are facing change and uncertainty. It’s critical that Canadian CPAs are able to adapt and help organizations stay ahead of the curve.

Adaptability is also crucial if organizations are to become more sustainable and develop innovative strategies for long-term profitability. The ONE speakers will be addressing these issues and will provide tools, tactics and resources to help CPAs navigate change.

Choose from a variety of sessions and panels in our interactive streams and earn additional CPD hours by adding on a pre- or post-conference workshop.
