About CPA Saskatchewan

CPA Saskatchewan ensures the protection of the public and the visibility of the profession. It represents all areas of expertise of the accounting profession, including assurance, financial accounting, management and management accounting, finance and taxation.

Professional accountants in Saskatchewan are represented by a single, self-regulating body and hold the designation Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA). Legislation to create the Institute of Chartered Professional Accountants of Saskatchewan (CPA Saskatchewan) was proclaimed November 10, 2014. CPA Saskatchewan resulted from the merger of the three legacy accounting bodies, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Saskatchewan (CA), and the Society of Management Accountants of Saskatchewan (CMA) and the Certified General Accountants Association of Saskatchewan (CGA).

The CPA designation is Canada’s pre-eminent accounting and business designation. With more than 5,000 members and candidates in Saskatchewan, and over 200,000 members across Canada, CPAs provide crucial financial expertise to businesses in every sector of the economy.


CPA Saskatchewan registrants are subject to regulation, which includes The Accounting Profession Act, Regulatory & Administrative Bylaws, Rules of Professional Conduct, Regulatory & Administrative Board rules and processes established for CPA Saskatchewan.

With the proclamation of The Accounting Profession Act on November 10, 2014, all Saskatchewan’s accountants are now united under a single designation banner – CPA.
