Michael Souza was born in Hong Kong in 1955 and immigrated to Canada in 1968.  He graduated from high school in 1973 and was employed by Revenue Canada Taxation (now Canada Revenue Agency-“CRA”) in 1976.  He obtained his CGA designation in 1984 and after a 35-year career as an income tax auditor at CRA, he retired in 2011. Michael has been a member of the North Shore Numismatic Society since 1988 and is currently holding the positions of President, Secretary, and Treasurer of the club.
