Fast Pace to the Case (FPC) Delegate Application now Open

Attracting the brightest accounting students from across the province, Fast Pace to the Case provides a competitive environment for delegates to prepare an accounting case similar to the format of the professional accounting exams and present them before their peers and professionals from the industry.

We have added a booth-style networking component for the upcoming year which will take place in the afternoon. This will be followed with a relaxed mixer in the lobby to end the evening. Moreover, delegates will have the opportunity to attend two one-hour interactive and engaging workshops lead by our sponsors about accounting-related topics and professional development.

At $4,000, FPC boasts the largest first place cash prize out of any accounting case competition in the Southern Ontario Region. Cash prizes will also be awarded to the second, third place teams in the amount of $2000 and $1000 respectively. In addition, one male and one female delegate will receive an award for their outstanding overall performance during the day.
