The Society of Management Accountants of Canada (CMA Canada) endorses the Federal Agreement on Internal Trade

    TORONTO, Feb. 2 /CNW/ - CMA Canada announced today that it endorses
changes to the Agreement on Internal Trade made at the Ottawa first ministers
meeting on January 16, 2009 to support greater mobility of professionals
within Canada.
    Certified Management Accountants (CMAs) practising public accounting must
comply with the National Public Accounting Standard, therefore ensuring
professional mobility in Canada. Public accounting is a post CMA designation
area of practice and the national standard defines the purpose, attributes and
specifications of each element of practising public accountancy. The standard
is built on the foundation of professional accounting and management expertise
and the high standards of professionalism and ethics already established in
the awarding of the CMA designation.
    In addition, CMA Canada maintains mutual recognition agreements with a
number of international associations, and complies with the standards of the
global organization for the accountancy profession, the International
Federation of Accountants.
