Welcome to the

 GTA Accountants and 

GTA Finance Network

As a finance professional, a tax practitioner, a professional accountant such as a CPA, or anyone else who values professional development and networking, we would like to invite you to join us at upcoming events.

In-person Events Live Webinars On Demand/Archived

We are working hard to bring you relevant PD programs and excellent speakers while everyone is working hard to flatten the curve and banish COVID-19 from our midst.

While we continue with the physical and social distancing measures and await the vaccinations to help move us forward and slow the spread, we still have some time in front of us before things will be back to normal or, more likely, some to-be-determined form of “new normal”. Social and professional events have been cancelled or converted to virtual events, and many people are isolated while we fight against the virus. Keep healthy and happy, and keep the boredom (aka cabin fever) at bay. One great choice is upgrading your skills and knowledge through our upcoming live webinars.

Our live webinars are a great way to stay informed and stay connected safely. In addition to joining our webinars live as they happen, we also have dozens of on demand webinars with a variety of topics available for viewing at your convenience.

 Our courses qualify for the CPD requirements of all of the provincial CPA associations, CBV Institute, CFE and LSO.

The objectives of the GTA Accountants Network and the GTA Finance Network include the following:


To provide a forum for professional accountants, such as CPAs, tax practitioners, finance professionals, executives and other interested parties in which to enhance their technical and general knowledge, network, exchange ideas and connect to solve issues.  We have assisted practitioners in selling their professional practices, finding buyers for their practices, finding clients or experts in required fields, filling positions (whether permanent or temporary), finding a position, and in other ways

Education and Practice Development

To provide ongoing education on topics that are relevant, interesting and insightful, which will help with your professional and practice development, that are presented by speakers who will also be great resources for you


To assist you in improving business capabilities and enhancing your contact and knowledge base

Professional Development

To assist you in achieving your ongoing professional development requirements in a variety of ways that are flexible to meet your needs.  We offer in-person (once we return to normal) as well as live webinars and archived webinars

Good Meal

Once COVID-19 is under control and we return to some level of normality, to sit down for a good meal and enjoy the company of other professionals


It is an association with a mandate to bring to accounting, finance, tax and other professionals excellent speakers and topics on a wide range of relevant topics on a cost-effective basis, as well as networking and other opportunities. During COVID-19, we have pivoted to entirely live and on-demand webinars, but during non-pandemic times, we also offer in-person sessions.  Our PD sessions are offered during the days and evenings in various formats (i.e., full- and half-day sessions, one-to two-hour sessions).  The network operates on a break-even basis in order to offer attendees access to high quality and affordable learning and networking opportunities.  If you have any questions about our programming or the association in general, feel free to contact Melanie Russell at melanie@kalexvaluations.com.

We are pleased to work together with itaxpartners to offer you incredible PD opportunities.
