An Afternoon with a CMA at WorkSafeBC

On August 5, 2011 WorkSafeBC, one of CMA BC’s Elite Employers, opened its doors to a group of post-secondary students for An Afternoon with a CMA. The event gave students the opportunity to learn more about the CMA designation, as well as the many job opportunities available to CMAs and CMA candidates working at WorkSafeBC.
