ACCA and CGA Canada Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA)
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 indefinitely. All individuals who submit a complete application before the expiry will be considered for admission under the MRA. Unfortunately, we do not know when it will expire so we encourage you to apply as soon as you are eligible to do so.
