CGA-Canada was founded in 1908 in Montreal, Canada. On April 14, 1913, the Canadian parliament passed an act to charter CGA-Canada as a professional association for self-regulation. In 1999, the Canadian parliament amended the original act, redefining the rights and objectives of CGA-Canada and setting the French name of it.
