     Vancouver, BC – The Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (IPBC) announces the certification of Laura Kenway, of Cluculz Lake, British Columbia, as a Certified Professional Bookkeeper (CPB). Ms. Kenway is self-employed and operates Lakeshore Bookkeeping Services, serving the Highway 16 corridor between Prince George and Vanderhoof.

     She runs a small, personalized practice that specializes in home based businesses. She also provides free of charge at, an online Small Business Accounting Guide dedicated to supporting work from home business owners who do their own books.

     The IPBC's national mandate is to institute professional standards specifically for the Canadian bookkeeping profession. “More than 60,000 Canadians hang out their shingle as a 'bookkeeper’, yet competency in that industry ranges from stellar to mediocre,” said Gordon Skillen, Executive Director of IPBC. “Who is the best professional to do the important compliance work required by law of business owners? There are millions of business owners across Canada who depend on the services of a bookkeeper. Business owners and employers will come to demand the CPB designation.”

     Ms. Kenway received the CPB designation after passing an invigilated national exam. Applicants must achieve at least 75 per cent in order to pass. The exam is based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) accepted worldwide.

     Laura Kenway, CPB, can be reached by phone at (250) 441-0197, or by email at lbscpb at bookkeeping-essentials dot com. For more information about the Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada, visit or call 604-637-9607 or Toll Free 1-866-616-4722 (Pacific Time)
