What type of work do accountants complete?
Audits and assurance engagements are conducted by accountants and other professionals. Public accountants (PAs), who audit financial statements as well as conducting these other engagements, can be either CGAs, CMAs, or CAs in Canada. Although some CMAs provide assurance services, most CMAs are financial management professionals. CIAs and internal auditors often do operational audits and help management assess risks. There are also many specialist designations, such as the CISA.
