World Certification Institute (WCI) accredits PBA Canada membership for world credential awards

WASHINGTON, Oct 14, 2015 – World Certification Institute (WCI) has accredited the Professional Business Accountants’ Society of Canada (PBA). All members of PBA will now be officially recognized for automatic certification from World Certification Institute (WCI).

PBA was established in Alberta in 1980 and was formerly known as the Registered Public/Professional Accountants’ Association of Canada (RPCA). The professional body now has four main chapters in Canada, and is committed to promoting professional accounting to a diverse group of professional accountants.

Following the accreditation by World Certification Institute, PBA Associate Members automatically qualify for the Credential Award of a WAP (World Accredited Practitioner). PBA Full Members automatically qualify for the Credential Award of a WCP (World Certified Professional). Those with more years of experience and who met the criteria of WCI can apply for higher credential award.

World Certification Institute (WCI) is a global certifying and accrediting body that grants credential awards to individuals as well as accredits courses of organizations.

During the late 90s, several business leaders and eminent professors in the developed economies gathered to discuss the impact of globalization on occupational competence. The ad-hoc group met in Vienna and discussed the need to establish a global organization to accredit the skills and experiences of the workforce, so that they can be globally recognized as being competent in a specified field. A Task Group was formed in October 1999 and comprised eminent professors from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Canada, Australia, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, and Singapore.

World Certification Institute (WCI) was officially established at the start of the new millennium and was first registered in the United States in 2003. Today, its professional activities are coordinated through Authorized and Accredited Centers in America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and Africa.
