The Ordre des comptables professionnels agréés du Québec (CPA) is a professional order representing members of an "exclusive profession" as defined by the Professional Code, that is an organization dedicated primarily to the protection of the public. To this end, the Order, like the 43 other professional orders in Quebec, must carry out specific functions related to issuing permits to new members, updating the Roll of the Order, monitoring the practice of the profession and detecting illegal practice. It must also comply with a set of operating rules imposed by the Professional Code.
The CPA Order was created in May 2012 following the unification of the accounting profession in Quebec. It results from a merger of the Ordre des comptables agréés (CA), the Ordre des comptables généraux accrédités (CGA) and the Ordre des comptables en management accrédités (CMA). The Order thus represents all the areas of expertise of the profession—assurance, financial accounting, management and management accounting, finances and taxation —at the service of enterprises, organizations and the public.
The CPA Order comprises 35,000 members and more than 6,500 candidates for the practice of the profession. By combining its distinctive forces under a single order, the Quebec accounting profession strengthens its position both nationally and internationally.
