A career you can count on - CGAs are accounting and finance professionals with a difference. Diverse and highly skilled, they have achieved a respected designation through rigorous academic training and intense real-world experience. They're trained to look beyond the numbers, drawing on their broad learning and individual strengths to facilitate problem solving and provide leadership across industries and within changing business realities. The CGA designation tells an employer that a prospect is well equipped to add value to the organization no matter what the future brings.

Certified general accountants see more than numbers. 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 members and students in the province of Ontario. In Ontario, there are 20,000 CGAs and approximately 8,000 students working towards their designation.
