Become A CPA

As previously announced, CGA Ontario has unified with CPA Ontario and the CGA program of professional studies will end in September 2015. Final unification of the profession in Ontario will come with the introduction of a new Chartered Professional Accountants Act, which CPA Ontario will seek from the Government of Ontario as soon as possible. CGAs became members of CPA Ontario in July 2014.

The organizations are now working to integrate operations. Students in the CGA program will continue in the CGA program until September 2015, at which time those with academic requirements remaining will have the opportunity to transfer to the CPA program.
