Your Best Asset for Protection.

When CPAs faced challenges within the insurance market, leaving the public and accountants potentially unprotected, the CPA Professional Liability insurance (CPA PLI) was formed. For over 30 years, we’ve worked alongside the National and Regional/Territorial regulators to become the largest professional liability insurance provider, exclusively for CPAs by CPAs. As keepers of the profession, we work daily to protect thousands of firms, their practitioners, and the public they serve across Canada and Bermuda.

We provide end-to-end services whereby underwriting, claims and risk education are directed inhouse. This seamless continuity ensures you deal with experts who know you and your firm and provides you with real peace of mind that lets you focus on your business. 

Our coverage is designed for accountants at any stage of their careers, offering flexible and comprehensive protection. Whether you’re just embarking on your accounting practise, a seasoned professional/firm, or you are retired from practise, we offer tailored solutions to address your evolving needs, supporting your ability to meet the regulatory requirements for the accounting profession and protecting the public you serve.

Our rich claims data enables us to anticipate and adapt to new and emerging risks.  We use the information to better the profession in two ways.  First, we share insights with our insured members, enabling the profession to proactively avoid or mitigate future losses.  Second, we use the insights to design better coverage.  

Our commitment extends far beyond simply defending claims.   We provide insured members with education and advice, helping avoid and minimize losses altogether. In case a loss does occur, we provide the profession with protection, so that profession can in turn offer protection to the public that it serves.

CPA Professional Liability Insurance Plan Inc. is a privately held company, created in 1989 for CPAs by CPAs.  The governance structure includes the Board of Directors and Trustees, both of whom are volunteers. Together with CPA PLI’s executive team, they are responsible for ensuring a strategy reflective of the interests of the provincial/territorial CPA regulatory bodies and CPA Bermuda and successful operational execution.   

As a member of the CPA family network, CPA PLI maintains strong relations with the regulatory bodies.  An inter-provincial committee comprised of representatives from the regulatory bodies actively provides guidance and advice to the Board of Directors and CPA PLI, with a special focus on ensuring protection that serves the interests of both insured members and the public that they serve.
