Yukon accounting bodies sign merger agreement

Three Yukon accounting bodies pursue merger.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of the Yukon (ICAYT), the Certified Management Accountants Society of the Yukon (CMAYT) and the Certified General Accountants Association of the Yukon (CGA-YT) have signed an agreement to pursue a merger. The three self-regulating accounting designations will work together to become the Chartered Professional Accountants of the Yukon (CPAYT) under the national CPA banner.

Until legislation is enacted, CA, CMA and CGA members will maintain their current designations. The ICAYT, CMAYT and CGA-YT will continue their existing mandates until then.
