Licensed CPAs and CPA firms in Canada can soon apply for .cpa web domains to enhance their brand positioning in the digital world and promote greater trust and security with clients in online communications. The restricted web domain, which is administered by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) and its business and technology arm, CPA.com, officially launches in Canada at 11 a.m. Eastern time on Nov. 2. To be eligible, Canadian CPAs and CPA firms must be licensed.

The .cpa domain service was first launched by the AICPA in the United States in September last year and has received a high degree of interest from firms of all sizes.
