“Becoming a Registered Professional Accountant (RPA) is one of the best decisions I’ve made as a professional accountant. After getting my diploma in Accounting & Finance From a Community College, I enrolled with The Society of Professional Accountants of Canada and obtained my RPA designation. Since then, I was able to achieve a management position in my company’s accounting department, and I have also independently provided accounting and income tax preparation services to small businesses. The RPA designation has opened many doors for me in my career, and I recommend it to anyone looking for more opportunities in accounting. “
