On January 15, 2012, the leadership of CGA Prince Edward Island (CGA-PEI) announced to its members that it is joining exploratory discussions with the CA and CMA organizations in PEI as part of the ongoing dialogue to explore the merits and feasibility of uniting the Canadian accounting profession. In joining this discussion, CGA-PEI has indicated that it agrees with the eight overarching principles outlined in the position paper released in May 2011.
