ACCA was founded in central Canada and the Board is actively engaged in expanding the membership across the country. We aim to be a national association that reaches from coast to coast to coast. We encourage members to network in their urban centres through informal gatherings or more structured professional development activities.
If you are the first in your region to join, please let us know and we will connect you with other consultants in your area so that you can start networking locally, as well as nationally.
What is a Consultant?
A consultant is an experienced individual who is trained to analyze, advise and/or facilitate in order to help clients make the best possible choices; a consultant provides counsel and assistance to a client on specific assignments.
Consultants who are members of ACCA are self-employed or employed as a member of a firm of consultants. They are:
- Independent in relationship to the client;
- Autonomous, bringing and applying expertise and judgment to the project or situation;
- Engaged on multiple projects – concurrently or consecutively; and
- Paid by the client for advice and work.
