CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR CHARTERED PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTANT NEW BRUNSWICK (CPA-NB)

Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) is a designation given by the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) to individuals that pass the Uniform CPA Examination and meet the education and experience requirements. The CPA designation helps enforce professional standards in the accounting industry. CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) is the highest accounting credential in Canada. CPA ensures global recognition for accounting & finance professionals.

CPAs are admitted to the profession through their Provincial Institutes. These bodies are responsible for establishing and administering the qualification process, admission criteria, and performance standards within their jurisdictions. The CPA Canada’s role – in concert with all provinces, and territories – is to develop and maintain consistent, uniform standards for the profession's qualification process. These standards ensure the portability of the CPA’s designation across Canada and internationally through various mutual recognition agreements.
