Today the Certified General Accountants Association of Ontario (CGA Ontario) issued an announcement to its members stating that they are rejoining discussions with CPA Ontario and CMA Ontario to support the unification of the accounting profession currently taking place across Canada.
With the announcement yesterday that Manitoba’s Certified General Accountants have entered into discussions in that province, this means that all 40 of Canada’s accounting bodies have either united or are committed to uniting under the CPA banner.
The CPA and CMA bodies in Ontario issued a joint member communication in response, welcoming CGA Ontario back to the unification discussions and further stating that they are committed to ensuring that all members of the CPA profession are treated equally, with equal access to future career and professional development opportunities.
If the three Ontario bodies are able to come to a mutually acceptable unification agreement, all parties would then seek member support for unification via a vote according to their respective governance processes.
The leaders of the CPA and CMA bodies in Ontario are confident that the three organizations will reach agreement and will be in a position to unify their members and operations in 2014 under the name of CPA Ontario.
In a communication to their members, CPA Saskatchewan Joint Venture named Keri Ziegler, CA, CEO of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Saskatchewan (ICAS), as its initial CEO. Following enactment of the new Accounting Professions Act, Ms. Ziegler will continue as CEO of CPA Saskatchewan. She will be supported during the transition phase by Betty Hoffart, FCMA, CEO of CMA Saskatchewan (CMA SK), who will undertake additional responsibilities on behalf of the joint venture, CPA Saskatchewan and Transitional Steering Committee.
The joint venture was created by the ICAS, CMA SK and CGA Saskatchewan to facilitate the combination of the three legacy accounting bodies pending new legislation creating CPA Saskatchewan. Effective immediately, Ms. Ziegler will be responsible for the planning and operations of the joint venture. This includes preparation for the amalgamation of the three legacy organizations, their regulatory functions, remaining activities and resources.
