About CPA

The Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation emerged from the belief that Canada needs a single, unified accounting profession. All 40 of the accounting bodies in Canada have now either unified or are participating in discussions to unite under the CPA banner.

Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) is Canada’s preā€eminent accounting and business designation. With more than 600 members and students in this province, Chartered Professional Accountants of Prince Edward Island (CPA PEI) will foster the growth and evolution of the accounting profession, while also providing the expertise to help businesses in every sector of the economy.

Nationally, a combined Canadian accounting profession, built on the strengths of the three legacy designations will be more than 190,000 members strong and better positioned to represent their interests in Canada and abroad. Unification will also enhance the influence, relevance and contribution of the Canadian accounting profession. The public interest will be served by common codes of conduct, disciplinary systems and licensing regimes.
