  • John Bryant started at CGA-Canada on October 18, 2010, and is working on HRSDC funded Foreign Credential Recognition projects  (see: http://www.cga-canada.org/en-ca/MediaCentre/MediaReleases/2010/Pages/ca_mdr_2010-08-26.aspx). His varied background in business education has given him broad exposure to accounting curriculum, credential recognition and transfer credit mechanisms. Earlier in his career he worked as an Educational Advisor, which often involved helping new immigrants with credential recognition and bridging issues.  A CGA intranet posting states: “I am excited to be part of an initiative that will reflect huge steps forward in terms of Fairness, Transparency, Timeliness and Consistency for internationally trained accountants and others with foreign educational credentials seeking the CGA designation.”
