About CPA Canada: International chapters

Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada (CPA Canada) is committed to supporting our offshore members, who are an integral part of the unified professional accounting body and represent the Canadian accounting profession internationally.


Since offshore members can be members of any of the provincial CPA bodies, CPA Canada provides a mechanism for bringing them together through international chapters. All members who reside in a jurisdiction where a chapter is established, regardless of where their membership is based, will be invited to participate in and become involved with chapter activities. There are no additional dues for membership in the chapter. Chapters will be overseen by local chapter boards, appointed by CPA Canada.
