Update on Ontario unification discussions

Today, the ICAO confirmed that unification remains its goal, despite withdrawal from the process by the CGA and CMA Ontario bodies.

Today, the ICAO confirmed in a message to members that unification of the profession remains their goal despite announcements from CMA Ontario and CGA Ontario that they are no longer participating in unification discussions. The ICAO emphasized that it remains part of the national unification, believing that unification would benefit all accountants, protect the public interest and strengthen the future of accounting in Canada. ICAO therefore intends to stay involved with developments across Canada and to work with those parties who share similar beliefs.
