NEED GUIDANCE FROM EXPERIENCED CPAs ON PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS?

CPA Ontario’s professional advisors are here to help.  Our professional advisors help members comply with professional standards, identify issues and discuss potential solutions. Consultations are strictly confidential, conducted over the phone/email, and are informal, as the professional advisor may not have all the necessary information.

Our aim is to support members navigating ethical standards, regulations, accounting and assurance standards, and practice management challenges. Our free professional advisory services deliver thoughtful, objective and timely feedback to all members, whether they are involved in industry, public practice or volunteer work. CPA Ontario students may also contact us for guidance on ethical standards.
