The Canadian accounting profession made history in fiscal 2014-2015 with the creation of a single national Chartered Professional Accounting body representing Canada’s 190,000 professional accountants. It happened on October 1, 2014, when CGA-Canada’s domestic and international members, students, staff and volunteers joined Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada). Being the national body for Canada’s only business and accounting designation — and one of the largest accounting bodies in the world — is making a difference. CPA Canada now has the influence, recognition, resources and reach to deliver more to our members, students, other stakeholders and, of course, the public.

  • making a difference by delivering Canada’s premier business and accounting education programs: The Canadian CPA is more than an accounting designation—it’s also a business credential and it recognizes that accountants must not only measure value, but also create value.
  • making a difference—in Canada and globally: With the profession acting and speaking as one, stakeholders in Canada and around the world are acknowledging the value of the Canadian CPA profession.
  • poised to make an even bigger difference: Throughout this report we address the way unification has helped CPA Canada enhance its ability to strengthen the profession’s capacity and effectiveness.
