Cynthia Hamilton, CPA, CGA, BAccS

Partner – Kemp Harvey Group

Accounting has been part of Cynthia’s life since childhood as her father was in the profession as well as many members of her family. She began working in the field in 1978 and completed her designation in 1992, at which point she had already been in her own practice for a year. She began providing computer consulting along with solid accounting knowledge. Her career path has also been interspersed with a few years controller for an international pump company and assistant controller for a large lumber retailer. Cynthia’s training, however, has come primarily from a number of well-known legacy CA and CGA firms.

In addition to her CPA, CGA, Cynthia has a first-level certificate from the Data Processing Management Association, a Bachelor of Accounting Science from the University of Calgary. She has completed the CICA In-depth tax course, took numerous programs in the Computer Science program at Douglas Collect and has passed the US Registered Tax Return Preparer (RTRP) exam.

Cynthia brings to the Kemp Harvey Group not only a sound accounting and tax background, which includes preparation of US personal returns, but also a strengthening IT background which is so valuable in any computerized environment. In a 1999 North Shore News Readers Poll, under her married name, she was voted third most favorite accountant on the North Shore. In her spare time, Cynthia has volunteered with the CPABC Burnaby/ New Westminster Chapter (previously Burnaby / Royal City Chapter of the CGA Association), is currently on the website committee for the British Columbia Genealogical Society and is involved with the Willoughby Residents Association, to name a few. Cynthia was awarded the Harold Clarke Award in 2014.
