Hi everyone,

 

I am applying to the CIO soon under the NOC 1111 - Financial Auditors and Accountants.

 

I have calculated my education as 20 points based on the following: I am  ACCA qualified  and have diploma from  the Association of Accounting technicians (AAT).

 

Can anyone advise me if I have calculated my points accurately?

 

Thanks

Please see the reply recived from CMS Ontario.org

Hello Amit,

 

Thank you for your interest in the Mutual Recognition Agreement offered through the Society of Management Accountants of Canada (CMA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants of the United Kingdom (CIMA). This Mutual Recognition Agreement presents a unique opportunity for CIMA members to become Certified Management Accountants.

 

To be eligible for admission, applicants must:

 

·         Possess a university degree or the equivalent, recognized by CMA Ontario.  Applicants without a university degree will be accepted for membership if they possess a minimum of five years of practical experience at the “incontestable level” in a strategic leadership position or a blend of experience at the CS-3 and CS-4 levels of the CMA Competency Map (attached).

 

·         Be legally entitled to either work in Canada or be a citizen of Canada, and have a residential or business address in Ontario.

 

·         Possess a minimum of two years (24 months) of relevant practical experience at the managerial level (CMA Competency Map CS-2), of which one year must be gained while employed in Canada.

 

·         Be a member in good standing with CIMA with no outstanding disciplinary charges or outstanding complaints that are in the course of investigation.

 

·         Declare any previous disciplinary action and any criminal convictions for which a pardon has not been granted.

 

·         Have qualified as a professional accountant by completing the entire CIMA program of studies.  Also, applicants must have started the CIMA program of studies prior to immigrating to Canada.  If the applicant completed part of a program through a third organization and received advanced standing with CIMA, CMA Ontario reserves the right to accept or reject the application at its discretion.

 

·         Have not previously attempted and failed a CMA Canada qualifying examination.

 

The MRA CIMA Application must be accompanied with a completed Practical Experience Reporting Form.  This application will allow the Society to ensure you have completed all the requirements of the Mutual Recognition Agreement.  MRA CIMA Applications will be reviewed on an on-going basis.

 

The second step in the process is the completion of the Certified Membership Application form.  This application form requires you to have an active, certified CMA Member act as your sponsor for the designation. You will also be required to pay the yearly Certified Membership fees of $799.05.  Applications must be approved by the Ontario Board of Governors which meets three times a year.

 

I would like to thank you for your interest in the CMA designation.

 

If you have any questions, please contact me at (416) 204-3102 or via email mborins@cma-ontario.org.

 

Sincerely,

Candidate Support
