CPA Saskatchewan announces introduction of legislation

CPA Canada welcomes introduction of new Accounting Profession Act

On November 7, the CPA Saskatchewan Joint Venture announced the government’s introduction of The Accounting Profession Act, which will formalize the union of the province’s three accounting bodies as CPA Saskatchewan.

The introduction of the new Act follows the recent signing of the Joint Venture agreement between the three bodies on October 15, 2013. The legislation outlines the standards that will define CPA Saskatchewan as a professional self-governing body.

Currently the three accounting bodies, CA, CMA and CGA, have a combined membership of 4,400 members and 970 students. The three existing accounting bodies will continue to operate until the bill is enacted.
