The Certified General Accountants Association
of Canada (CGA Canada) and French accountancy body Conseil
Supérieur de l’Ordre des Experts-Comptables (CSOEC) have entered
into a mutual recognition agreement (MRA).
Under the agreement, members of CGA Canada and
the CSOEC can be considered for membership by the other body.
Members must meet the prescribed requirements
for public accounting in the jurisdiction they wish to practice
CSOEC president Joseph Zorgniotti said
the MRA enables the expansion of workforce mobility between the two
The new partnership broadens an earlier
agreement between the CSOEC and the CGA association in the
French-speaking Canadian province Québec.
It is the fourth MRA CGA Canada has with a
foreign accounting organisation.
CGA Canada serves 73,000 members and students
The CSOEC has 19,000 members.
