PD Passports

2016 PD Passports are valid for courses that take place between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016. Events that are not eligible for passport pricing will be marked on all materials but PD Passport holders may be entitled to special discounts. Any remaining unused days CANNOT be carried over to 2017.

CPAs have exclusive access to Personal PD Passports. With a Personal PD Passport you can attend any combination of half-day, one-day or two-day seminars that add up to three days of PD for $840, plus HST — a savings of more than $420.
