One Governing Body Takes Effect

Legislation to create Chartered Professional Accountants of Prince Edward Island (CPA PEI) was proclaimed April 1, 2015.

April 1, 2015 marked an important day for the accounting profession in Prince Edward Island – Chartered Professional Accountants of Prince Edward Island was formally established with the proclamation of The Chartered Professional Accountants and Public Accounting Act by the Government of Prince Edward Island.

The accounting profession, as ICAPEI, CGA PEI and CMA PEI have become one professional body (CPA Prince Edward Island) representing over 600 members, candidates and students in Prince Edward Island.

Be proud that all professional accountants in Prince Edward Island are now united under one designation – the CPA. As one designation, members will benefit from consolidated marketing of the accounting profession, will have one voice advocating for members’ best interests, one educational pathway, one body for self-regulation and we will eliminate confusion in the marketplace about the different designations.

We are excited to be building Canada’s and Prince Edward Island’s pre-eminent accounting and business designation.
