CGA-Canada online course now available
New agreement enables ACCA members to gain membership of CGA-Canada
13 Apr 2007
ACCA recently signed a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) with the Certified General Accountants Association of Canada (CGA-Canada) that enables ACCA members to gain membership of CGA-Canada.
Central to the agreement was the requirement that members of both bodies must successfully complete an overview course in Canadian/UK tax and law, approved by both ACCA and CGA-Canada. The CGA-Canada course is now available online, thereby allowing ACCA members to commence the application process to become members of CGA-Canada.
Please note that:
- members of both bodies who apply under the terms of this agreement will be required to maintain membership of their original designation.
- the MRA does not convey practice rights; members of both bodies wishing to obtain a practising certificate for general public practice or audit work from either ACCA or CGA-Canada will have to meet the additional requirements specified by each body.
