PURPOSE

Our organization is dedicated to advancing the proper management and governance of public funds in Canada for future economic stability and growth. We believe that a lack of knowledge in Public Finance Management (PFM) and taxation contributes to inflation and increased taxes. By enhancing PFM, we aim to mobilize revenue, allocate funds efficiently, and control spending to address the Canadian Government Debt Crisis exceeding 2.1 trillion. Our goal is to strengthen the PFM and Taxation profession, providing leaders with measures to promote wise spending, combat fraud and corruption, ensure good governance, and support economic growth.

We emphasize the crucial role of the accounting profession as trusted advisers, working for the prosperity of our country and the well-being of our society. Our focus is not on becoming the world's largest national accounting body, but on adding value to Canada, promoting financial resilience, and fostering a debt-free growth. We advocate unity to address challenges such as fraud and corruption, ensuring good governance, and supporting economic growth for the benefit of our country and society, with the principle of "Canada Comes First."

CGPA Global Canada's primary purpose is to protect the public interest by ensuring our members and students meet the highest standards of integrity and expertise. We have built partnerships throughout our history to deliver professional qualification and certification worldwide and attract people who share our dreams, and values and believe in our purpose. We help and support our members and students in their professional qualification and development in a wide range of senior positions in taxation, public finance management accounting, small and medium-sized businesses, not-for-profits, government, and academia.
