IPBC News Release



Vancouver, BC – The Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (IPBC) announces the certification of Bea Dabrowski, of Winnipeg, Manitoba, as a Certified Professional Bookkeeper (CPB).  Ms. Dabrowski is the Owner and Controller of CertPro Accounting Team Inc.

The IPBC’s national mandate is to institute professional standards specifically for the Canadian bookkeeping profession. “More than 60,000 Canadians hang out their shingle as a ‘bookkeeper’, yet competency in that industry ranges from stellar to mediocre,” said Gordon Skillen, Executive Director of IPBC. “Who is the best professional to do the important compliance work required by law of business owners? There are millions of business owners across Canada who depend on the services of a bookkeeper. Business owners and employers will come to demand the CPB designation.”

Ms. Dabrowski earned the national CPB designation after passing an exhaustive three-hour exam. She achieved one of the highest scores to date on the exam, a 94%. The exam is based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) accepted worldwide.

Bea Dabrowski, CPB, can be reached by phone at (204) 510-9676, or by email at info@AccountingTeam.ca .
