Uniting the Canadian accounting profession

By joining together, Canada’s accounting bodies will be in a strong position to provide the highest quality financial and management accounting services, while serving and protecting the public interest by establishing consistent codes of professional conduct, disciplinary systems and licensing regimes.

Unification of the profession would result in Canada having one of the largest accounting organizations in the world with the influence needed to advance Canadian business interests.

The P is for Professional: CPA Canada launches national multi-media advertising campaign

September 17, 2013 -- A bold, multi-media national advertising campaign was launched today, raising awareness about the new CPA designation as efforts continue to unite Canada’s accounting profession under one banner.

The advertising uses clever wordplay to create strong, positive impressions about the value CPAs provide to all types of organizations. The campaign will be seen in various media — television, newspaper, billboards (airport) and online — and is targeted at the business community, the primary users of CPA services.

Various elements will run to the spring of 2014 with online advertising and a campaign microsite (CPApro.ca) running throughout that period.



http://cpacanada.caCPA Canada provides information on the unification of the Canadian accounting profession. Unification Framework is the result of several months of discussions among our organizations and consultation with members, Canadian business leaders, governments, regulators and other stakeholders.

It includes details of a transition to a new common designation,
Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), and the development of a new CPA Certification Program.
