The Association of Administrative Assistants is a Canadian chartered non-profit professional organization with a three-fold purpose: to establish a national standard of qualifications for administrative assistants to senior personnel; to reach this standard by providing advanced education; and to make management aware of the fully qualified administrative assistant.

The Association is proactive in encouraging its members to further their education and enhance their career opportunities by continuously upgrading their skills and professionalism. Association members are encouraged to obtain the Qualified Administrative Assistant (Q.A.A.) designation. The Qualified Administrative Assistant Program consists of three compulsory courses and four elective courses.

All applicants wishing to register as a student in the Q.A.A. program must be a member of the Association of Administrative Assistants (A.A.A.) before they can apply to become a Q.A.A. program student. All Q.A.A. designation holders must remain members in good standing of the Association of Administrative Assistants to retain the designation of Qualified Administrative Assistant.
