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 75,000 members in 125 countries that have investigated more than two million cases of suspected
criminal and civil fraud.
The Edmonton Chapter of the ACFE was formed in 1994 and now consists of 45 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 do consider attending some of our events and become a member today!
The Edmonton Chapter provides an annual scholarship of $500 to a student enrolled
full-time or part-time at Grant MacEwan University. The student must be enrolled in a
post-secondary program leading to a certificate, diploma or degree in
Accounting, Business, Commerce, Policing, Security or Investigations.
Applications must be received by January 31, 2017 at 4:30 p.m.
