CMA Manitoba and CA Manitoba sign joint venture agreement and provide update on CGA Manitoba

Manitoba CMAs and CAs take next step to unifying the two bodies.

Today the Certified Management Accountants of Manitoba and the Chartered Accountants of Manitoba notified their members that they have signed an unincorporated joint venture agreement, which is effective as of July 1, 2013. This joint venture is the next step to unifying the two accounting bodies as they work to establish the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation in Manitoba.

In addition, CGA Manitoba has advised that they will begin a consultative process with their members to discuss strategic alternatives given the state of unification of the accounting profession across the country. CMA Manitoba and CA Manitoba see this consultation as a positive development for the unification of the profession.
