UTSC grad makes Honour Roll in CA test

One of UTSC’s recent alumni has achieved a rare distinction: he’s one of only 20 candidates to make the Honour Roll of the national test to become Chartered Accountants.

“It is a very big achievement because it makes you stand out among your peers in the accounting world,” says Calvin Lem, a 2012 Management graduate. “The CA exam prepares you for all sorts of skills in the business.”

About 1,600 people took the 2013 Uniform Evaluation (UFE), a rigorous evaluation process that must be passed to hold the designation of Chartered Accountant.

Those who want to apply to become chartered accountants are obligated to complete a university degree with specific course credits, and undergo specialized training before they can pass the UFE. Candidates are also required to have some work experience.

Lem currently works at Campbell Lawless Professional Corporation. Last year three UTSC alumni made the honour roll.
