New bylaws in Prince Edward Island allow members to use CPA designation

With new bylaws passed in April, CA, CMA and CGA members in PEI may now use the CPA designation

Following the announcement of their joint venture in January 2014, the CA, CMA and CGA bodies in PEI each passed a new by-law in April 2014. Although tabling of CPA legislation in PEI has been delayed until the fall 2014, the new by-laws mean that members in that province may now use the CPA designation in conjunction with their legacy designation if they choose.

The by-laws came into effect on May 1, 2014 and confirm that any PEI member in good standing may use or display the designation “Chartered Professional Accountant” or the initials “CPA” in conjunction with their legacy designation (i.e. CPA, CA,  CPA, CMA,  CPA, CGA).
