CPA Ontario provides reasonable test accommodations to individuals who have documented disabilities (physical, mental or learning impairments) within the definition provided by the Human Rights Code. Accommodation requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure equal opportunity for individuals to fully demonstrate their qualifications without altering the nature or level of the qualification being assessed. We consider each case after carefully reviewing the submitted documentation; however, submitting a request does not guarantee receiving accommodation. Accommodations are provided to ensure that all individuals are treated fairly on all evaluations.
Specific accommodations depend on the nature of the disability. Accommodations may include, but are not limited to:
We may accept applications up to two weeks before the examination date in exceptional circumstances, such as in the event of an accident or for compassionate reasons.
