What do these words mean to you?

Embracing the best of Canada's three legacy accounting bodies, the new Chartered Professional Accountant designation affirms the knowledge, skills and capabilities of the professionals who hold it. A united profession, working to a common set of ethical and practice standards, can more effectively provide the highest level of strategic and financial expertise, while serving and protecting the public interest.

With greater numbers, and a convergence of financial and management accounting experience in demand across every business sector of the economy, the new designation will command a stronger, more influential voice, both at home and abroad. The majority of Canadian accounting professionals are working together to realize the CPA vision - a strategically sound, long-term vision that is better for business, better for Canada and better for all of us.
