News Release July 2nd, 2009. BOOKKEEPING STANDARDS ON THE RISE IN KITCHENER, ON Vancouver, BC – The Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (IPBC) announces the certification of Cindy Jeary, of Kitchener, ON, as a Certified Professional Bookkeeper (CPB). Ms. Jeary is the owner of By The Numbers. The IPBC's national mandate is to institute professional standards specifically for the Canadian bookkeeping profession. “More than 60,000 Canadians hang out their shingle as a 'bookkeeper’, yet competency in that industry ranges from stellar to mediocre,” said Gordon Skillen, Executive Director of IPBC. “Who is the best professional to do the important compliance work required by law of business owners? There are millions of business owners across Canada that depend on the services of a bookkeeper. Business owners and employers will come to demand the CPB designation.” Ms. Jeary received the national CPB designation after passing an exhaustive three-hour exam. Applicants must achieve at least 75 per cent in order to pass. The exam is based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) accepted worldwide. “IPBC, with their CPB standards, benefits bookkeepers in Canada and new immigrants seeking employment in our country. A recent study in the US shows the Certified Bookkeepers earn more money,” said Skillen. The IPBC website features career postings and a section for business owners titled, “Find A Bookkeeper.” Cindy Jeary, CPB, can be reached by phone at (519) 743-3998, or by email at For more information about the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada, visit or call 604-637-9607 or Toll Free 1-866-616-4722 (PT)
