In a growing age of transparency, ethics matter. Ethics also present an opportunity for CPAs to uphold the Canadian ideal of good business – where financial sustainability and economic growth are equal goals, and acting with integrity and the bottom line are not mutually exclusive. \nYOUR CAREER COMPASS\nMost business successes are built on the foundation of trust from customers, clients and the marketplace. Unethical behavior can erode this, whether it’s aggressive tax avoidance or other missteps that cause harm and ignite controversies in the profession.\nActing with public interest in mind is at the core of the “CPA Way.” As CPAs, you are accountable to this mission under the CPA Code of Professional Conduct, which exceeds international standards set by the Ethics Standards Board for Accountants.\nIf you want to learn more about how to meet your ethical responsibilities in day-to-day business activities, an online course or webinar can help enhance your knowledge of professional ethics. \nEMBEDDING ETHICS IN YOUR PRACTICE\nOur continuing education courses include several options that explore the complexities of twenty-first century corporate ethics.
