Life at Telfer

Congratulations to two of our #TelferNation BCom alumni, Emily Potvin, CPA, and Rachael Lidstone, who made it on the CPA Ontario National Honour Roll for their academic excellence and exceptional abilities in the #CPA Common Final Exam! 👏

For Emily, who now works at Rewind as an Assistant Controller, making the CPA Honour Roll was a rewarding experience and a fitting culmination to years of hard work. 📆

Rachael, who currently works as a Senior Staff Accountant at GGFL LLP, loves a challenge and credits her success on the exam to setting healthy boundaries. ⚖️

A new Telfer study shows that traditional family businesses often treat their children differently based on gender when it comes to succession. 👩‍💼

Emma O'Dwyer, regional manager at Family Enterprise Canada, said she has experienced #GenderBias first hand in her own family and was given no support when obtaining her two #MBA degrees and when building her own professional network. 👥 🏢

Meanwhile, President and CEO of The Sirius Group Inc, Susan St. Amand, TEP, FEA, ICD.D, was supported by her family in her business endeavours, but still wasn’t chosen to take over the #FamilyBusiness. 🏢

Hear what advice both of these successful professionals have for families who wish to challenge gender bias in succession planning:

Our Expertise



The global climate challenge is real. Business needs to lead the way to a more sustainable future for everyone. To build a solid foundation for our future, we need to completely rethink and reorient the way our economy does business. Learn More



We need to rethink our approach to healthcare from a system perspective, so that we have a better guarantee that the resources Canada puts into healthcare are doing as much as they can do for as many people as possible. Learn More



Happy people are more productive, have better health outcomes, and are more likely to contribute to their communities. We need our workplaces and economy to enhance happiness, not impede it. Learn More



We need money to get activated. We need it to work harder and generate more businesses, more leaders, and more innovations. We need it to work for Canada. Learn More
