Chartered professional accountants work in communities across the province and are a valuable strategic asset with expertise in areas such as financial reporting, finance and taxation, strategy and governance, assurance, and performance management.
While public accounting is still a core aspect of CPA training, in BC, 80% of our members work outside of this sector holding a wide range of positions from mid-level management to the C-suite in industry, government, academe, and not-for-profit.
Chartered professional accountants are trusted by Canada's business leaders to help make the financial, strategic, and leadership decisions that matter. The CPA profession’s commitment to excellence and to high professional standards provides the crucial foundation for this trust. Canadian CPAs are recognized around the world for having obtained a rigorous post-graduate credential that combines relevant work experience with in-depth business and financial coursework and strategic management.
All CPAs are members of a regulated profession and adhere to high standards, and CPABC is one of the largest professional organizations in the province with over 34,000 members and almost 6,500 legacy and CPA students and candidates. Throughout their professional careers CPAs are subject to ongoing stringent regulation and must undertake professional development, continuously updating their skills and knowledge.
