As far as immigrating to Canada is concerned, the Canadian benchmark is the CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant).

Relocate to Canada as an Accountant through Express Entry:

Accountants who need to move to Canada on a PR should initially start by registering themselves in the Express Entry pool and try to get an Invitation-to- Apply (ITA) from Immigration and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). When an individual has an ITA they can apply for Permanent Residence (PR).

On a Canadian Permanent Residents, you can:

  • Live and work in Canada

  • Settle with your family in Canada
  • Access Canadian Healthcare
  • Access social advantages
  • Apply for Citizenship and Dual Nationality following four years
