HEC Montréal warmly congratulates its 159 Specialized Graduate Diploma in Public Accountancy graduates who passed the 2011 Uniform Final Evaluation (UFE) for chartered accountants, a cross-Canada exam that is considered one of the most challenging in the world. Of this number, 134 successfully completed this crucial step that all Canadian CAs must pass in order to obtain their professional designation on their first try, and 25 on a repeat attempt. In Quebec, a total of 576 candidates passed the exam.
When announcing the results, Daniel McMahon, FCA, President and CEO of the Ordre des comptables agréés du Québec, said he was very pleased with the performance of the Quebec candidates: “Their success on the UFE is the fruit of the determination they have shown since the beginning. But we must also emphasize the importance of the support they received from their professors and training offices, which guided them toward this achievement.”
