About Toronto Chapter of ICAI

We Are Toronto Chapter of ICAI

The Toronto Chapter of ICAI is the first North American Chapter which is a not-for-profit organization in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for the Alumni (i.e. Associate and Fellow members) of ICAI. The primary objective of the Toronto Chapter is to provide networking and professional development opportunities to its members. The Chapter was inaugurated by the then President of ICAI, Mr. Sunil Talati.

The Chapter was formed with the idea of having a common forum where the members could meet, exchange views, and interact professionally with other members. Also, this provides an ideal opportunity to the members and their families to participate in social functions and reach out to each other.

Since its inception in 2006, the Chapter has provided a platform to share and disseminate knowledge amongst members as well as project the image of ICAI in Canada. It has also helped in developing excellent relationship between the accounting fraternities of India and Canada. The Chapter continues to enroll new members regularly and has successfully maintained the enthusiasm and commitment amongst members through various professional development and social events, as well as through the annual magazine.

The Chapter has made tremendous achievements since its inception in terms of its membership, professional development activities, and presence on the web. Its website, www.icaitoronto.com, is a repository of valuable information about its activities, membership benefits programs, publications, and its past and forthcoming events. The website stores presentations made at professional development events for members to view or download later at their convenience.
