It is important to note that there have been major changes in the governing bodies that are accredited to give accounting designations in Ontario. Accounting designations formally referred to as CMA (Certified Management Accountant), CGA (Certified General Accountant), and CA (Chartered Accountant), are now in the process of amalgamation to have one unified accounting designation called the CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant). Each of the three former governing bodies have developed their own transition programs for CPA certification – students already on the path of any accounting designation are encouraged to contact CPA Ontario directly to plan the completion of your designation by the new standards.
All students beginning their path toward an accounting designation are required to go by the requirements set out by CPA Ontario. Please refer to the following link for more information regarding the CPA Path Decision Tree.
