Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the Homepage of the Toronto Chapter of Tax Executives Institute!

The 2015/2016 Event Calendar is now posted on the site.

 2015 Event Schedule 2015-2016.pdf

Thank you for visiting the online community for the Toronto Chapter, TEI's largest chapter with one of its most active memberships. This site has been created to allow chapter members to find and share resources and important information related to tax professionals within our community.

Our primary focus is to provide leaders in the tax community with valuable professional development and networking opportunities. Our events provide relevant, current and comprehensive technical information and provide excellent opportunities for sharing ideas and establishing direct peer-to-peer connections.

The board has developed a great program with a wide range of topics and speakers and we hope to see you at many of our meetings. For a list of upcoming programs, please scroll down or click on "Chapter Events" to the left of your screen. Chapter meetings are listed in the Upcoming Meetings sections below. Further details of the program meetings can be found using the links in the "Chapter Events" section to the left.

I encourage you to take some time to explore our site often since there are important resources, information and updates available relating to our chapter.

Many of our speakers' presentations are posted to the "Chapter Documents" library which is viewable only by members after they have signed in. As part of our commitment to our chapter members, we hope you find this a user friendly website with easy links to additional resources, and tools for finding chapter events information to support our goals of membership involvement. New resources are continuously being added to this website - new links to organizations that will help you keep up to date on the latest tax developments and new policy and practice innovations. We are committed to continuous improvement processes in serving our chapter members and we would like this to be as user-friendly a site as possible. We welcome your feedback/suggestions.

Please email your website suggestions to Frank Martinicchio, at
