Positive vote from Alberta CAs supports three-way unification

ICAA issues results of member survey.

On June 28th, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta (ICAA) announced that their members have voted in support of unification with CGA Alberta and CMA Alberta.

A total of 5,700 Alberta CAs, representing 51.7 per cent of the membership, participated in the vote which took place between May 31 and June 26. The results show that 68.4 per cent of voting Alberta CAs support the Alberta Unification Plan, which outlines how the three organizations will merge the province’s three accounting designations. Based on this vote result, the ICAA Council voted unanimously on June 27 to proceed to the next stage of unification with CGA Alberta and CMA Alberta.

The member announcement was followed by a joint media release from the three Alberta accounting bodies confirming their intention to unify under the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) banner.
