A member may apply to the Registration Committee for permission to resign from registration by submitting the Membership Resignation Form. Registered Firms should refer to the resignation procedures in the by-laws.
You may not apply for resignation if:
For those members who intend to resign and become a member of another Provincial Body, you must become a member of the other Provincial Body before resigning from Nova Scotia in order to remain a member in good standing in Canada.
Please forward the required documentation to:
Chartered Professional Accountants of Nova Scotia
Email: [email protected]
1871 Hollis Street, Suite 300
Halifax, NS B3J 0C3
Once resignation is completed, a former member can no longer refer to themselves as a Chartered Professional Accountant, CPA or any legacy designation (CA, CMA, or CGA) including any deviation or combination of those initials, words, or expressions where it is used to imply registration with CPA Nova Scotia in Nova Scotia.
A reinstatement fee and further requirements under the Continuing Professional Development Policy will apply should a former member seek reinstatement of membership. Any reinstatement application will be subject to re-entry requirements and the review and approval of the Registration Committee.
