Julia has over 30 years of experience in Public Accounting for small to medium sized businesses, non-profits, and individuals, and has been in practise for herself for most of that period.
After Graduating with a B.A. degree from Trinity College at the University ofToronto, she worked as a junior CA for several years for a medium sized CA firm in the East End of Toronto. She moved to the West end of Toronto, and set up her own practice as “Julia P Stavreff CA” in the 1980’s. Initially she had only five clients. However, her client base grew rapidly as a result of networking, and referrals and she soon took on support staff to help service her growing clientele. In 1991 Julia and another CA named Barbara Gory merged their practices into a partnership called “Gory and Stavreff, Chartered Accountants”.
After Barbara’s retirement, Julia took over Barbara’s clients as well as her own, and the name of the firm again became “Julia P Stavreff CA” . With the change of designations by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in 2013 , Julia’s professional designation became Julia Stavreff CPA CA.
Currently, Julia has 6 support staff: two CPA’s in addition to herself, a senior accountant, a staff accountant, an audit technician/bookkeeper, and an administrative assistant. From time to time she also makes use of two of the staff from the CA firm of Terri Heggum-Allen, who share Julia’s office space.
