After graduating from the University of Toronto, Martha Thomas worked in a number of industries which eventually motivated her to go back to school. She enrolled at Camosun College in Victoria, B.C. and completed her accounting designation. Her articlating time was at Hutcheson and Co. in Victoria. She then moved into the public service where she remained in various sectors over the next 17 years. Working in the government provided Martha with a number of opportunities which allowed her to develop to the Chief Financial Officer for the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation. During her time, she also took the opportunity to lead financial courses for the Public Sector Agency. One of the courses was the Ethics for Public Servants.
Martha recently made a move to the British Columbia Investment Management Corporation which provides professional funds management services for public bodies and publicly administered funds.
Martha is married and has two beautiful girls. She is also the Vice President of the National Financial Management Institute of Canada – a not for profit organization that develops and provides professional development for public servants.
