Why choose a Chartered Professional Accountant, not an “accountant”?
Anyone can call themselves “an accountant”, but not just anyone can call themselves a Chartered Professional Accountant.
- As professionals, we belong to a self-regulated professional body which has the mandate to promote and protect the public interest.
- As professionals, we are required to meet and maintain standards of qualification, practice, and professional ethics, as well as standards of knowledge, skill and proficiency.
- Only CPA’s who meet public accounting licensing requirements mandated by the province can provide assurance services to the public in Saskatchewan and call themselves Licensed Public Accountants.
- Only firms that are properly registered and comply with the regulatory and ethical requirements of CPA Saskatchewan can call themselves Chartered Professional Accounting firms.
