Certified Aboriginal Financial Manager

We are not just average accountants – we are also Certified Aboriginal Financial Manager (CAFM) designated! While great accountants can help an organization reach its financial goals, a CAFM designated accountant can help you achieve so much more! Our CAFM designated senior accountants have met the core competencies that are essential for aboriginal financial management, as required by AFOA and CPA Canada.
