Nice. The CPA has 4 parts that can be taken independently of eachother and is geared toward public accounting. You may be thinking about the CFA...which is no joke and very specialized towards financial analysis. In any case, I wish you the best of luck sir!

Edit: just realized you were canadian - I'm not sure what the designations are or how the tests are administered out there. CPA (certified public accountant) is pretty much equivalent to "chartered accountant" in most places.
