Hi bsgarzon, did you apply for the cma international accounting designation scholarship, which will grant qualified applicants of 12,200$? im still undecided on what designation to pursue. still waiting from the CGA kung iggrant nla ung fast track saken. if not i may go for the cma. from alberta ka din ba? thanks.
Hi Anapie23 -
No, I didn't apply for that scholarship thing with CMA Alberta.  I'm planning to settle in Ontario eh.  Not sure if may equivalent na scholarship sa Ontario, pero parang mukhang wala.  Good luck in your decision between CGA vs CMA.

Hello everyone. I hope everyone is doing well. Ask lang sana ako kung kailangan pa bang ipa red ribbon ang mga PRC credentials natin like the ID, Board certificate and board rating? Hingi ako ng advice please. Salamat. God bless us!

kiking, in my case I had it in red ribbon kasi i have extra copies, just to be sure i acknowledge nila na authentic ang dox ko. but my TOR is certified by the school registrar lng, not in red ribbon. PICPA cert has the dry seal of PICPA mandaluyong. ok naman sa kanila. btw, sa CGA Ontario ko pinadala, i dont know kng ok lng sa ibang province.

much better if u e-mail them so that u will be guided. reply naman din agad sila.

sad ako coz my appeal for additional 7 subject to be exempted was denied. maximum daw nila for transfer credits is 7 subjects lng.  Sad Sad Sad Sad kaya tuloy i'm thinking of pursuing CA....kasi 1 subject na lng pag-aralan ko, yun lng, i have to find internship with an approved CA training office....kakayanin ko kaya Embarrassed Embarrassed

 @ Mimi:  I am shocked  Shocked and at the same time sad  Sad when I found out that CGA Ontario denied your appeal.  Sobra naman sila.  Bakit yung iba, they allowed additional subject to be exempted, parehas lang naman ang board exams natin.

As for me, I have submitted my docs sa CGA Ontario and they have already debited my CC.  Hoping and praying that their assessment would turn out well. 

Thank you again guyz for all your inputs during my CGA assessment preparations.  Tuesday na naman, sana maraming magDM.   Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Lapit ka na Mimi  Tongue Grin Tongue

kaya nga eh, pero I can still file for an appeal for the last time kasi maximum of 2 appeals daw. pero ayaw ko na. may nagshare ata d2 na nagfile ng 2nd time but discouraged by CGA kasi nga daw our curriculum is already outdated Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy gusto lng nila aral tayo ulit so that we will be updated and it will be a lot easier for us to pass the qualifying exams Cheesy come to think of it, they have a point Cheesy

CA Ontario sent an e-mail to me requesting me for additional dox coz I requested for additional exemptions, yng SOA and CKE and some parts of the professional experience rqmts nila. kaya nagpadala na rin ako, no harm in trying at tska free naman, kaya go lng ng go  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Exciting news about the merger of CA and CMA profession in Canada.  Here's the e-mail I got.

=====================
May 24, 2011    


Earlier today, the leaders of the Certified Management Accountants of Canada and the Chartered Accountants of Canada announced they have entered into discussions to explore the possibility of uniting the CMA and CA organizations through the creation of a new professional designation.  

Given your expressed interest in pursuing a career in accounting, we know that you may have questions or concerns with respect to this announcement.  

First and foremost, you should know that these discussions and any possible outcome from them will not have an impact on the nature or value of the existing CMA designation.  If you have been planning to pursue the CMA, you should continue to do so with every confidence that upon completion you will have earned a leading and internationally respected accounting designation.

Registration deadlines for the Accelerated Program and Entrance Exams remain unchanged.

We want to ensure that you have all the information you need to understand the changes being considered.  To this end, please visit CPACanada.ca for information about the future of the accounting profession in Canada.

If you have any questions or comments about how this impacts your registration for a CMA program please do not hesitate to contact the CMA info @ cmaontario.org.

Similar discussions of a CA-CMA were held in 2005 and failed.

  @  Mimi:  Wow, indefinite leave.   Shocked Shocked Shocked Sarap naman.  Ingit ako.  Shocked  Tongue  Cheesy   Me, I am trying to get myself busy with work.  Naiinis lang ako pagnakikita ko yung pace ng release ng visa.  Over sa pagstagger.   Angry Sad Angry

You filed din pala with CA Ontario.  Thats nice.  Try ko rin baka sakali makakuha ng CATO, pero pagdating ko na lang siguro.  Grin Grin Grin  Kakatamad mag-ayos ng docs pag wala pang visa.  I'll back read na lang how you did it.  Although, from what I remeber, easy lang sya kasi we were already assessed as a body (PICPA).  Tama ba?

Wink Grin Cheesy Wait lang tayo.  (Kasi wla namang tayong magagawa  Smiley)  Kahit 3 days per week (more or less) lang pinaprocess nila. Darating din yang pesteng visa na yan.  Cool  Angry Tongue Cheesy 


Hopefully by August 15, before the school starts naduon na kami.   Wink Smiley Tongue

kasi december p lng gusto ko na tlga magresign, kaya lng ala pa visa...long overdue na resignation ko actually, jeje. pero indefinite leave lng muna file ko. im getting myself busy with learning advance MS Office 2007 and 2010, pati quickbooks 2010. doing private practice on the side para di maubos POF ng di pa nakakaalis Tongue Tongue Tongue

if u want to request for addl exemptions, yng CKE and SOA and part of the experience requirement, u need to provide the following:


         A current letter of good standing issued by the accounting body;

         An updated chronological resume indicating place of employment, positions held and length of time employed;

         A completed Experience Certification Report for each former employer and your current employment. 

         An outline clearly showing how you meet the competency criteria; you can find relevant info on this link: http://www.icao.on.ca/Admissions/InternationallyTrainedAccountants/1011page12663.pdf);

         A letter stating which exemptions and the extent of those exemptions you are seeking and the specific reasons why you believe your request should be granted; and

         If you are admitted to membership, whether you intend to practise public accounting.

yan pina comply nila sa akin, wait pa ako ng result...

hi! ang maganda pag CPA ka na dito is u can avail of certain perks. when u want to pursue CA, u will jst have to take up canadian busnes law, tax and experience reqmt. mas marami din exemptions ma grant pag CPA ka d2 than when ur not if u pursue CGA or CMA.

mas mabuti if u read relevant infos in these webpages so that u will be enlightened; these links provide a clearer vision of how u can pursue the designation of ur choice depending on ur education and professional background. u can see anong advantages pag CPA vs non-cpa. u can try this links:

http://ecareermaps.ca/en/cga/index.html
http://ecareermaps.ca/en/cma/index.html
http://ecareermaps.ca/en/ca/index.html

sayang din kasi patapos ka na at cpa board n lng kulang.

goodluck!

Dear All -

Share ko lang ang good news.  Bukod sa nakuha ko na ang visa namin last week, dumating na rin yung results ng CGA Transfer of Credits application ko.  I only applied for 14 Transfer of Credits.  I intentionally did not include Business Law and Taxation sa application ko dahil alam ko naman na hindi yon ma-credit dahil magkaiba ang law and tax ng mga bansa natin.  I'm just so happy that out of the 14 courses, they credited 11!! Medyo weird lang kase ang hindi nila na-credit is Business Communication, Computer Tutorials and External Auditing.  Pero all other accounting subjects ko na-credit nila.  I don't know kung ano yung criteria nila pero sana na-credit na rin etong mga to dahil basic lang naman.  Anyways, just the same I am so thankful for all the blessings.

Good Luck sa ibang naghihintay!
