Mr. Speaker, as a proud fellow chartered professional accountant, I am delighted to highlight an important milestone for Canada's accounting profession.
On April 1, the accounting profession celebrated its fifth anniversary of operations.
Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada, CPA Canada, is one of the largest national accounting bodies in the world, with over 210,000 members at home and abroad.
CPA Canada's mission is to act in the public interest and contribute to economic and social development.
Members of the CPA profession work with the government on vital issues, such as tax policy, financial literacy, climate change, labour mobility, and international trade.
I invite all parliamentarians to join me in commending them for their efforts and wishing CPA Canada a happy anniversary.
