Welcome to the Edmonton Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiner's new and improved website. Founded in 1988 by Joseph T. Wells, CFE, CPA and former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Agent, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) has become the world’s largest anti-fraud organization with over 50,000 members in 125 countries that have investigated more than two million cases of suspected criminal and civil fraud.
The Edmonton Chapter of the ACFE consists of 65 plus individuals who come from various professions, including auditors, accountants, fraud investigators, loss prevention specialists, attorneys, educators, criminologists and police officers. CFEs gather evidence, take statements, write reports, and assist in investigating fraud in its varied forms. Most major corporations and government agencies employ CFEs, and others provide consulting and investigative services.
The ACFE is dedicated to the single mission of reducing the incidence of fraud and white-collar crime through prevention, detection and education. Our chapter meetings and conferences are great places to network and learn, so consider attending some of our events and become a member today. Have a look at the Upcoming Events page.
