TORONTO, Nov. 7, 2013 /CNW/ - TVO is pleased to announce that Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario (CPA Ontario) is the 2014 recipient of the TVO Caring Corporate Partner Award, recognizing CPA Ontario's outstanding and continued support of TVO's flagship current affairs program, The Agenda with Steve Paikin.
The TVO Caring Corporate Partner Award acknowledges the generous support it receives from private sector partners and the role they play in helping TVO deliver on its mission to make Ontarians smarter, more aware and more informed. CPA Ontario (registered name of The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario) recently renewed its sponsorship of The Agenda with Steve Paikin for the sixth consecutive year.
"We're very happy to present the 2014 TVO Caring Corporate Partner Award to the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario," says Lisa de Wilde, TVO's Chief Executive Officer. "CPA Ontario has demonstrated a commitment to serving the public interest through their generous support of TVO and The Agenda with Steve Paikin, the gold standard for in-depth analysis and thoughtful debate in Canada. The financial support TVO receives from donors and corporate sponsors like CPA Ontario is critical to building a sustainable financial model and keeping TVO on air and online."
"It is a real honour to accept TVO's Caring Corporate Partner Award for 2014 on behalf of CPA Ontario and the province's almost 37,000 Chartered Professional Accountants," says Rod Barr, President and Chief Executive officer of CPA Ontario. "For the past six years, it has been our pleasure to support The Agenda with Steve Paikin - a quality current affairs program that consistently delivers thought-provoking and intelligent discussion on issues that shape our province."
CPA Ontario was presented with TVO's Caring Corporate Partner Award at a gala on November 6 in honour of TVO's founder, Bill Davis. The gala was a tribute to Mr. Davis for his pioneering vision in establishing Canada's first educational television service more than 40 years ago. Since then, TVO has evolved from a TV station to a multiplatform educational media organization for the digital age. The event, for which CPA Ontario was the presenting sponsor, was held at the Fermenting Cellar, Distillery District in Toronto, and was hosted by TVO's Steve Paikin.
TVO is Ontario's public educational media organization and a trusted source of interactive educational content that informs, inspires and stimulates curiosity and thought. TVO's vision is to empower people to be engaged citizens of Ontario through educational media. TVO is funded primarily by the Province of Ontario and supported by sponsors and thousands of donors.
