Those who have the same long-term goals but intend to find a job may want to choose the two-year diploma program and continue later as financing further study becomes more viable.
Note: Given the current state of unification of the accounting profession in Ontario under the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation, we urge you to stay informed by visiting the CGA website at cga-ontario.org.
