President's message


The Association of Filipino Canadian Accountants (AFCA) has been, and will always be, at the frontline championing the cause of Filipino accounting professionals in Ontario and parts of Canada.

On our 44th year since inception in 1978, the Association continuously fulfills its commitment to the development of our members to attain Canadian standards of competence and professionalism through workshops, networking, social and training events.

Technical topics related to accountancy, finance, taxes, audits and other similar areas are always an integral part of the training events we conduct year-round.  In addition, there are topics related to information technology, wellness, career counselling and mentorship.

We are active in the community by providing free income tax preparation services – a service we do in association with the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).  We also provide free accounting services to various events being organized by different Filipino organizations.  We have our scholarship program envisioned to help poor but deserving students.

The Association also cooperates with the different Philippine and Canadian government agencies and professional organizations to advance the recognition of Philippine credentials in Canada.  It is our aim to lay the groundwork for more exemptions for our Philippine CPAs in Canada who wish to get their Canadian CPA designation, or in the long-term, work for reciprocity or equal recognition of the Philippine CPA license.

We welcome all those who wish to become a member. If you are interested in learning more about the Association, you may contact us for more details.

Enjoy the perks of being a member!  Have fun as we join you attain your professional goals.


Sonny Martinez, CPA, CGA
