Members of international accounting bodies with MOUs

While all legacy Memorandas of Understanding (MOUs) with international accounting bodies have now expired, CPA Canada will soon negotiate new MOUs. Learn whether you will be affected.

The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) negotiated MOUs with international accounting bodies that provided members with advanced standing in the CA professional qualification program. These agreements have expired, and are now being reassessed by CPA Canada.

Please note that MOU pathways generally lead to certification only. The right to practice public accounting may require additional examination and/or experience requirements. For more information, please contact the CPA body located in the province you reside or plan to reside.
