    Tax & Investment Update for 2021

    DAVI invites you to attend our annual Tax & Investment Update for 2021! 

    Get informed about changes to tax laws affecting US citizens living abroad.

    This year we are delighted to welcome back Pat Fournier to lead our seminar. Pat obtained her CA designation in 2001 and her CPA designation in 2006.

    Pat's public practice experience has been from both sides of the border. She spent ten years in Seattle working in both public and private practice and gaining valuable insight into the banking industry through Washington Mutual's corporate office.  Then it was time to head back to Port Coquitlam, BC to settle down.  Being a dual citizen and a dual licensed accountant, setting up a practice specializing in US tax was a natural fit.  Pat now services individuals, small businesses and accountants.

    Our tax seminars are always well-attended by our members, so please RSVP as soon as possible.

    PLACE: Google Meet. We'll send you the link two days before, with a reminder to make sure you don’t miss this event. 

    SUGGESTED DONATION: $15 per person--OR--bring a friend $20 for two.

    Please e-transfer Interac donations to This account accepts automatic deposits.  Or email us at the same address for how to donate by mailed in check. Mailed donations must be postmarked no later than January 18.

    All donations are used for our Get Out the Vote initiatives. Please Note: DAVI may only accept donations from US citizens.
    The goal of our Annual Tax Seminar is to help answer your questions so that you are able to make your own decisions concerning these important matters. DAVI does not provide tax advice.

    Come along to our friendly seminar and don’t get caught out by any tax changes. Bring your questions and a fellow U.S. citizen with you -- regardless of political affiliation!

    Democratically yours,DAVI Chapter
