John Oakey joins CPA Canada as Vice-President of Tax

CPA Canada is pleased to announce that John Oakey has joined us as the new Vice-President of Tax, following Bruce Ball’s retirement in June.

In his new role, John is keen to draw on his passion for tax education and help contribute to policy making and administration of Canada’s tax system. He will serve as a spokesperson for CPA Canada, both domestically and internationally, and act in the public interest, providing tax-related information and perspective. He will also lead committees and working groups, consulting with the federal government regarding the development and administration of federal tax policies, while also providing thought leadership and education to CPA members.

John is an accomplished leader and a trusted advisor who brings a wealth of experience in both corporate and personal income taxes. He will continue to build on the great work the tax team has been doing in helping the profession shape a more equitable and effective tax system in Canada.

We are thrilled to have John on board and feel confident that John will help continue to drive forward and achieve our goals.
