Time for Change!
Great changes are ahead for the accounting profession, with the unification of the range of accounting professions under the Chartered Professional Accountant banner.
This change builds on the combined strengths, interests, and needs of all accounting professionals, allowing for greater influence and greater networking, both at home and beyond our borders. It also recognizes the wide variety of ways in which CPAs serve their clients, offering an opportunity for expanded professional development and greater relevance and visibility. As well, it offers greater confidence to the public, with a cohesive and consistent regulatory process and code of conduct.
No matter how you use your CPA, new opportunities await!
But in the meantime...what do these changes mean for you?
