Each provincial CPA organization is a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada), which represents more than 220,000 professional accountants across Canada and Bermuda, making it one of the top five accounting designations in the world.
CPAs work in every sector of New Brunswick. They are involved in a wide range of complex disciplines – from financial reporting, finance, and taxation; to strategy and governance, assurance, performance management, and information technology – and they volunteer their time and expertise for numerous community projects and charitable organizations.
Approximately 20% of CPAs work in public practice, but the rest work in diverse sectors of industry including government, education, and the not-for-profit sector. They offer a strong set of accounting and managerial skills required for today’s complex and evolving environment. These professional accountants are highly attractive to employers and recruiters for their solid training and expertise that contribute to improved efficiency and growth.
Throughout their professional careers, CPAs are subject to ongoing regulation to protect the public interest. Among other things, the Act provides for the regulation of members and firms, while the By-Laws assist to govern the operations of the Chartered Professional Accounting profession in New Brunswick.
