ICABC releases vote results – shows support for unification

BC CAs give ICABC “clear mandate” to merge.

In a message to members, the ICABC has released the preliminary results of its members’ vote that was held from May 1-18. Those results indicate that over 4,800 BC CAs voted, representing 43% of the membership—the highest participation level in decades: 52% support the unification of the existing accounting Acts into one Act; 9% believe that elected Council should decide; and 39% do not support unification. The ICABC Council states that it now has a clear mandate to continue unification discussions in BC as part of a national initiative.
