  • Alberta Accountants Unification Agency launches new job board

    The Alberta Accountants Unification Agency has launched a new job board to help connect Alberta’s professional accountants with employment and volunteer opportunities to further their careers.

    CMA, CGA and CA members will have free access to this service—which not only includes the ability to view available positions but provides members and students with the enhanced feature of directly uploading their resumes, which are then reviewable by potential employers. Students enrolled in the CPA Professional Education Program (as well as the legacy education programs) will also have access to this service.

    The Alberta Accountants Unification Agency job board can be accessed by following this link: jobs.albertaaccountants.org.

    Questions about this service should be directed to Nancy Green, Manager of Career Services, at ngreen@albertaaccountants.org.

  • CGA Ontario to re-enter unification discussions with CPA Ontario and CMA Ontario

    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.
