FP Canada announced on Sept. 22 its President’s List for the May 2021 sitting of the Certified Financial Planners (CFP) exam. This list recognizes the three candidates who have scored the best marks out of hundreds of exam writers from across Canada. 

They are: in first place, Jacob Toll of London, ON (Selectpath Benefits & Financial); in second place, Kimberley Priebe of Victoria, BC (Odlum Brown Financial Services); and, in third place, John Hunt of Vancouver, BC (MD Management).

"On behalf of FP Canada, I want to offer my sincere congratulations to Jacob, Kimberley and John for their outstanding performance on the CFP exam. Passing the CFP exam is an outstanding accomplishment, and we wish our President's List recipients every success in their future endeavours," said Tashia Batstone, President & CEO of FP Canada. 

To obtain Certified Financial Planner certification, candidates must complete a series of technical and professional educational requirements, pass the six-hour long national exam and undertake three years of qualifying work experience.
