Welcome to CPA Ontario
This is an exciting time for the accounting profession in Canada. Most of our nation’s accounting professionals are unifying as one single, strong profession under the banner of Chartered Professional Accountants. The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario became a member of CPA Canada in January 2013 and now uses the name Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario. As well, all of our Members now carry a new CPA in addition to their legacy designation.
As part of this transition to CPA Ontario, our website and telephone system have undergone major changes including a change of address to www.cpaontario.ca. Should you encounter any difficulties as a result of this transition, please contact us for assistance.
This section contains information on the CPA Certification Program, including FAQs and webinars.
The use of your CPA designation in conjunction with your CA became mandatory on July 1, 2013. This page will provide you with guidance on the use of the CPA designation in Ontario.
CPA Ontario and CMA Ontario welcome CGA Ontarioâ??s announcement that they are returning to unification discussions.
