Accounting Perspectives Special Event: Call for Papers

We are now more than two years after Canada's three accounting associations—CICA, CGA-Canada and CMA Canada—have merged into a single unified profession under the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation. While this merger is not unilaterally completed in each of the Canadian provinces, it can certainly be said that after years of discussion, CPA is now the dominant designation for the Canadian professional accountant.

As this decision undoubtedly had, and still has, a profound effect on several aspects of the profession, Accounting Perspectives is calling upon academics to share their views on the most important impact of the merger on accounting research and education, as well as on the challenges facing the profession going forward.

Accounting Perspectives invites manuscripts on any aspect of the merger of the profession, international experience with unified and differentiated professions and related topics. View Details +

2016 CAAA Annual Conference: Call for Papers

The theme of this year's conference is Journey to the Edge: Sustainability in Turbulent Times. Located at Canada's farthest Eastern point, Newfoundland and Labrador is both Canada's oldest settlement and youngest province with some of the most colourful homes in the World. Newfoundland and Labrador is known for its lively culture; from Kitchen Parties to George Street and some of the most breathtaking ocean views anywhere. The province has also shown its resiliency in facing its share of economic challenges. Newfoundland and Labrador has always lived and relied on its ocean resources—once fish, now petrochemicals. In doing so, it has had to innovatively adapt to the constraints and challenges that come with these ocean resources.

The theme of this year's conference embraces the history of Newfoundland and Labrador's economic resiliency. While definitions may vary, sustainability encompasses the social, economic and environmental factors that create value in organizations. With world economies the focus of attention, maintaining accounting sustainability within organizations may present new challenges and create a need to rethink and redesign how things are done.

The CAAA welcomes papers for the 2016 Annual Conference on all areas of research including financial and management accounting, financial reporting and communication, assurance, tax, accounting history and public sector accounting. Papers on the theme of sustainability are particularly encouraged. View Details +
