The framework for uniting the Canadian accounting profession was developed by the legacy accounting bodies (Chartered Accountants, Certified Management Accountants and Certified General Accountants) and provides the vision and principles that have guided all our merger discussions and progress since January 2012.
The Canadian CPA is the pre-eminent, globally respected business and accounting designation.
These eight guiding principles provide the framework to unify the profession and achieve our vision:
The new CPA organization would establish a certification program that draws on the strengths of the existing programs and would be recognized by members, regulators, global accounting organizations and the business community as being at least as rigorous as all existing programs. Detailed information on the CPA certification program is available by clicking here.
