Cameron Peters, TaxCycle

Cameron Peters
CEO and Founder

Learn from the person who started TaxCycle (as well as Cantax® and Intuit® ProFile® software). Cameron's presentations are peppered with useful tips and tricks for an efficient tax season. There are always a few surprises as Cameron adapts the presentation based on questions from attendees.

Maryse Venne, TaxCycle

As a veteran of the tax software industry, Maryse spent over a decade delivering French and English support and training on Intuit ® ProFile® and TurboTax®. Maryse’s hands-on experience in Québec and Canadian tax preparation make her TaxCycle training enriching and approachable to all levels of preparers. 

Each seminar date will be presented by either Maryse or Cameron.

The Montréal seminar will be presented in English by Maryse. Staff on hand will be bilingual English/French.


What time does it start in the morning?

Doors open and breakfast is served at 8 a.m. The presentation starts at 8:30 a.m. (If you're running behind, or travelling from afar you have a 30 minute cushion...)

Do I need a ticket to enter the event?

We use tickets to confirm your attendance and qualify you for the professional development credits. Please print your ticket attached to the order confirmation email and bring it to the event.  Or, open the Eventbrite app on your mobile device and show the confirmation when you arrive.

Someone else registered for me. How do I get my ticket?

If you registered a ticket on the behalf of someone else, that person must claim their ticket from the email they receive from Eventbrite. To claim a ticket, click on "Claim Your Order" within the email. It will open the Eventbrite website to log in or set a password.

How to do I get my certificate for professional development credits?

This year we are emailing out confirmation certificates for professional development credits after the event. Please make sure you register your attendance at the event in order to receive your certificate. If you are replacing someone else at the event, please let us know so we can update your certificate information and email you.

Where can I park? Is it free or paid parking?

Please contact the venue for the most current information on parking.

I need to stay overnight in order to attend the event. Do I get a special room rate?
