Certified General Accountants of Ontario (CGA Ontario) is a self-governing body that grants the exclusive rights to the CGA designation and controls the professional standards, conduct and discipline of its 22,000 certified general accountants (CGAs) and 8,000 students in the CGA program of professional studies in the province of Ontario.
CGA Ontario is committed to innovation and excellence, fostering career advancement, international mobility and lifelong professional development in the accounting and finance profession.At CGA Ontario we pride ourselves on providing students in the CGA program of professional studies with the most comprehensive curriculum within our innovative online learning environment.
Our program of professional studies provides CGAs and students with the technical abilities and skills they need to succeed in today’s ever-changing global economy. In our program, students aren’t confined to one strict accounting path, as we have set five different academic paths, one for corporate/small-medium enterprise, government/not-for-profit industry, information technology, professional practice, and licensed public accounting respectively.
Leading organizations hire CGAs because they bring more than straight accounting to the job. CGAs are known for their big picture thinking. Certified general accountants see more than numbers, they see the impact and opportunity behind them.
CGA Ontario is committed to providing goods and services in an accessible manner to all Ontarians in keeping with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The AODA mandates that businesses in Ontario must achieve accessibility for persons with disabilities in Ontario by 2025. Under the Act, CGA Ontario will notify stakeholders and the public of any service disruptions on our home page and the following web page.
