With three Accounting associations in Newfoundland and Labrador merging, I don't see it as a great day, but a dark day as it will put this province's Accountants in a disadvantage. Secondly, merging the associations will mean that Certified General Accountants (CGA), Certified Managerial Accountants (CMA), and other Specialized Accountants will no longer be recognized in this province, meaning their hard word and training to become such Accountants will be all for not. Since other provinces are not merging Accounting associations, and the Chartered Professional Accountant designation will not be recognized in other provinces, this will also put our Accountants in a disadvantage. In short, bad move for this province's Accounting associations and our Accountants will suffer as this designation is not recognized nationwide.
