What is a CPA?

Chartered Professional Accountants (CPAs) are trusted business leaders. They are dedicated professionals who focus on strategic and financial management. CPAs work in every business sector, as well as public practice, education, not-for-profits, and government. CPAs possess the expertise and ethical fortitude to navigate through disruptive change by anticipating the unexpected, making sense of complexity, and analyzing data to make business decisions that drive success.

The Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC) is the only regulated professional accounting body in the province of British Columbia. With almost 35,000 members and 5,000 students, CPABC is responsible for the regulation and professional development of CPAs, as well as the training and certification of CPA candidates. Protection of the public interest is a cornerstone of its mandate.

CPA members are part of a national profession, and CPA Canada is one of the world’s largest accounting bodies. With more than 200,000 members across the country and around the world, CPA Canada carries a strong influential voice. It plays an important role in influencing international accounting, audit, and assurance standards to ensure that these standards are appropriate for Canadian market needs.
