With the new school year underway we would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the most recent developments surrounding the unification of the accounting profession.
Nationally, the CA and CMA national boards gave approval for CICA and CMA Canada to commence work to establish CPA Canada as the national body for the unified profession. In addition, both bodies have committed to the development of the CPA Certification Program.
With plans for the first CPA program to be launched in British Columbia in September 2013, we expect many of you will have questions about the CPA Certification Program. A new website, CPA ONE, has been created to provide you with an overview of the new program. It also contains a very informative FAQ section that will address many of your questions and concerns.
Representatives from the CMABC and ICABC offices will also be on campus this fall hosting a CPA information session to meet with students in person to answer questions and ensure they are informed with the most up-to-date information about the CPA Certification Program. Students will be notified when those presentations are confirmed.
As more details about the CPA Certification Program become available, we will continue to keep you informed. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
