Founded in 1908, the Certified General Accountants Association of Canada represents 75,000 CGAs and students in Canada and around the world.
The association contributes to domestic and international accounting standard-setting through co-operative relationships with other accounting bodies, respresents the interests of the public, and serves as an advocate for accounting professional excellence.
As a national association, it also establishes the professional standards for all CGAs through the Code of Ethical Principles and Rules of Conduct, the CGA Independence Standard and mandatory continuing professional development.
CGAs work throughout the world in industry, commerce, finance, government, public practice and other areas where accounting and financial management is required. CGA clients range from major corporations and industries to entrepreneurs. CGAs’ expertise is valued in the public sector, government and the corporate world.

In Canada, many aspects of the accounting profession are governed by provincial or territorial legislation, so it is essential that there are CGA associations in every province and territory.
CGA students register and work closely with an affiliate association to earn the CGA designation, and members continue this important, professional relationship throughout their careers.
Each CGA association has its own website, where you can find detailed information and key contacts.
