“The RPA Code of Ethics and Professional Code of Conduct are integral part of the RPA designation. Professional Accountants’ specific duties for fair non-assurance financial reporting and business practices, transparency and accountability owed by all members to clients and the profession and to the public in general, said Zubair Choudhry, RPA, APA President of the Society.”
“I applaud the hard work and dedication of the Code of Ethics Committee under the leadership of Robert Finlay, RPA, ” Zubair added.”
Members are not only themselves responsible to the Society of Professional Accountants of Canada (SPAC) and the Canadian Institute of Accredited Accountants (CIAPA) for compliance with the Ethics Code but are also responsible for others directly under their supervision to adhere to the Code of Ethics. The Society’s Professional Code of Ethics 2021 mirrors the suitable, relevant, and appropriate standards from the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA) for RPA and APA designations.
RPA Professional Code of Ethics is in effect since November 18, 2021. The former Professional
Code of Conduct and Ethics interpretations were repealed as of that date.
