As a Controller, you are expected to be the financial expert in your organization. You are relied upon to produce, analyze and interpret the financial data that will be used by the executive team to make key financial decisions. To excel, you must continuously demonstrate leading edge knowledge and keen business acumen.
The Controller’s Operational Skills Program is designed to enhance your role on the management team by sharpening your skills in risk management and controls, ethical leadership, planning, budgeting and forecasting, performance measurement approaches and financial reporting. You will explore ways to maximize the effectiveness of your accounting department through staffing and structure, policies and procedures, and process and quality management. You will gain insights into performance enablers for success, with a focus on information management and human resources management, and an eye towards trends in Controllership.
Who Should Attend
Are you responsible for management and financial reporting? Do you want to build upon your operational skills and knowledge of Controllership? Do you want to gain more confidence and be more effective in your role? If you answered “yes”, and if you are either an aspiring Controller or an existing Controller, then this is the program for you.
This is an in-residence program, and with the exception of offerings held in Vancouver, participants are strongly encouraged to stay on-site. The program cost includes course materials and some meals. The accommodation costs are separate, and will be paid directly to the hotel. See the section below on Accommodation for more information.

The CPABC Controllership Program Certificate
The CPABC Controllership Program Certificate is a two-component program designed to provide you with the foundation for success. The Controller’s Management Program will focus on management soft skills, while The Controller’s Operational Skills Program will focus on core technical and operational skills. You can choose to complete only one of these programs, but if you complete both components you will receive the CPABC Controllership Program Certificate. Note that these programs can be completed in any order as they focus on separate and distinct skills. Additional future offerings to be scheduled.
Offerings held outside Vancouver: Although not mandatory, participants are strongly encouraged to stay on-site. We have negotiated special conference rates with the program facilities - note that the cost of the accommodation is separate from the program fee. CPABC will make the accommodation arrangement on your behalf - we will contact you to confirm your arrival and departure dates closer to the program dates, and will book those dates for you - but attendees will pay for their accommodation fees directly to the hotel upon checkout.
Pre and post conference dates are not always guaranteed at the same negotiated rates, and rooms outside the conference dates may not even be available during peak periods.
It is possible for you to arrange your own accommodation at a different facility.
Offerings held in Vancouver: We will not be holding any accommodation blocks at the hotel for offerings held in Vancouver. CPABC has negotiated corporate rates at some of the hotels in downtown Vancouver - those who require accommodation will need to make their own arrangements. CPABC has corporate rates available with the following hotels in Vancouver:
Sutton Place Hotel
Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver
Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel
Fairmont Hotel Vancouver
Delta Hotels by Marriott Vancouver Downtown
For information about how to book a room using the CPABC corporate rate, please see here.
We recommend booking your accommodation as soon as possible, as the corporate rate can sell out.
Early Bird $2,850 + GST
(deadline for the early bird pricing is 2 months prior to the start date of each respective offering)
Regular $3,150 + GST
