The Order reminds its members that, under the Chartered Professional Accountants Act, only members in good standing of the Quebec CPA Order who hold a public accountancy permit (CPA auditor) may perform audit engagements on financial information in Quebec. A person eligible to be an auditor is set out in subsection 477.3(1) of the Canada Elections Act as “(a) a person who is a member in good standing of a corporation, association or an institute of professional accountants; or (b) a partnership of which every partner is a member in good standing of a corporation, association or an institute of professional accountants”. Under the Chartered Professional Accountants Act, any violation of this provision amounts to the illegal practice of public accountancy.
