The framework for uniting the Canadian accounting profession was developed by the legacy accounting bodies (Chartered Accountants, Certified Management Accountants and Certified General Accountants) and provides the vision and principles that have guided all our merger discussions and progress since January 2012.
The Canadian CPA is the pre-eminent, globally respected business and accounting designation.
These eight guiding principles provide the framework to unify the profession and achieve our vision:

Detailed information on the CPA certification program is available by clicking here.
You can learn more about the framework and the benefits of unification by downloading the complete Unification Framework document.
