Ontario CA Council confirms plans to issue CPA to members and participate in CPA Canada

ICAO votes to issue CPA certificates and join CPA Canada.

At its October 19, 2012 meeting, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario (ICAO) Council voted to issue the CPA designation to members and reaffirmed its decision to join CPA Canada when it is formed. The Council made the decision to issue the CPA designation to protect the use of both the CA and CPA designations in Ontario and to enable it to participate fully in the CPA initiative, which is gathering momentum and progressing quickly in other provinces and at the national level. The vote followed related decisions made at the Council’s September 28, 2012 meeting.
