Progress continues in CPA Canada and CGA-Canada discussions

Participation agreement signed by CPA Canada and CGA-Canada to formalize integration discussions

Following the announcement of the return of CGA-Canada to the unification initiative in late April, merger discussions between Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) and the national CGA body have been ongoing and much progress has been made.

On June 18th, the leadership teams of CPA Canada and CGA-Canada signed a Participation Agreement to formalize their integration discussions. Next steps include development of an Integration Agreement that will detail how the integration will proceed. The target date for the Integration Agreement is fall 2013.
