The unique career advantages of
Being a CPA

As experts in “the language and toolkit of business,” CPAs have a distinct advantage in being able to choose careers, sectors, and places in which to apply their unique skillset. While CPAs do analyse the past and present, it is always with the strategic aim to envision and build future opportunities.


Work in any sector you choose, from wealth conservation to environmental conservation, gold mining to cannabis farming, trading floors to digital platforms


In any role you can imagine, from VP finance of a professional sports franchise, as an international forensic auditor, to a niche entrepreneur.


Wherever in the world you like, from your home town to Toronto’s financial
district, to Fogo Island in Newfoundland, to Europe, the US, Caribbean or Asia


With incredible job security, whether from the network of 220,000 CPAs,
consistent high demand from employers, or the great CPA salaries.


And the ability and opportunities to give back, whether as volunteer
treasurer for your favourite cause or as a highly credible community leader.
