Experience Requirements 

For CA legacy students reporting in RQE

Students who are still reporting in the Record of Qualifying Experience (RQE) tool are required to meet the exit requirements of the CA Practical Experience Requirements 2010

The following webinar (Record of Qualifying Experience) is designed for legacy CA students. It provides guidance on how to complete an RQE, including illustrative examples on the difference between a level 1 and 2 proficiency, and what legacy CA students need to know about Pervasive Qualities & Skills and Reflective Thought.


Reporting Completion of the Prescribed Practical Experience Requirement

When your prescribed practical experience has been fully documented  and you have completed the requirements of the CPA certification program (education, examinations and practical experience) and any other requirements as per the Members Handbook,  CPA Ontario will send you the Admission to Membership Application Form to complete.

Once you have submitted the completed form and any required fees CPA Ontario will review your application, which normally  requires four to six weeks.  During this time, CPA Ontario may contact you for additional documentation which could extend processing times.

Once the review has been completed, you will be notified via an email from the Registrar’s Office, and will receive your membership certificate and an official letter confirming your admission to membership within four to six weeks.


If you have any questions, please contact Customer Service at or 1 800 387.0735.
