The Canadian CPA profession and ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) are now in the process of negotiating a new agreement that sets out how members of each respective profession can obtain the designation of the other.

The existing MRA will remain in place until April 30, 2021. For full details on these changes, please refer to the CPA Canada website.

If you are a member in good standing of ACCA, U.K. you may qualify for admission to membership in CPA Ontario under the Mutual Recognition Agreement (the “MRA”) between CGA Canada and ACCA, U.K. If you are admitted to CGA Ontario, you will be automatically admitted to CPA Ontario as a result of the unification of the accounting profession and become entitled to use the CPA, CGA designations in Ontario.

It is important to note that this MRA was scheduled to expire in July 2016, however, the deadline was extended. All individuals who submit a complete application and fulfill the eligibility criteria before April 30, 2021 will be considered for admission under the MRA.
