CICA taxation welcomes new senior advisor

CICA is committed to supporting members who practise tax. Meet our senior advisor to the vice president — taxation.

In light of CICA's expanding tax committee structure and growing government outreach activities, we are pleased to welcome William Dobson in the new role of senior advisor to the vice president — taxation.

Bill has previously worked with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) in a variety of capacities, including 12 years as a public industry specialist and, most recently, as a special advisor to the director general, where he was instrumental in the development of CRA’s transformational tax administration project.

At CICA, Bill will be involved in many of our ongoing taxation initiatives, including:

  • supporting our expanding number of national tax committees
  • liaising with CRA and deepening relationships with its senior executives
  • enabling stronger communication, consultation and interaction between CRA and Canada’s tax community
  • representing tax practitioners’ interests in areas where CRA’s ongoing business transformation initiatives may affect taxpayer services
  • collaborating with CRA on the development of tax education and development programs and executive interchange opportunities for practitioners in public practice, government and industry
  • developing best practices for preparing tax returns and delivering tax planning advice

With Bill onboard, we look forward to taking our support for CICA's members who practise tax to new heights.
