Accountants in Canada are undergoing a unification process. This means that Chartered Accountants (CAs), Certified Management Accountants (CMAs), and Certified General Accountants (CGAs) are all unifying their designation under the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation, to largely follow the lead of the U.S.
"Embracing the best of Canada's three legacy accounting bodies, the new Chartered Professional Accountant designation affirms the knowledge, skills and capabilities of the professionals who hold it. A united profession, working to a common set of ethical and practice standards, can more effectively provide the highest level of strategic and financial expertise, while serving and protecting the public interest." - CPA website
