The CPA Designation

The Canadian CPA is the pre-eminent, globally respected business and accounting designation.

Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) is a unified Canadian accounting profession, built on the strengths of the three legacy designations (Chartered Accountant, Certified Management Accountant and Certified General Accountant). CPAs play key roles within diverse segments of the economy including industry, public accounting, government, education and the not-for-profit sector. They offer a strong set of accounting and managerial skills required for today’s complex and evolving environment. These professional accountants are highly attractive to employers and recruiters for the solid training and expertise that contribute to improved efficiency and growth.
