It takes an average of six weeks from the time a complete application is received by CPA Ontario for an applicant to be admitted to membership.
The fees required for admission to membership are outlined in Application Form 4-1E. The fees required for an Ontario public accounting licence are outlined in application form 9-1A. Please refer to Regulation 4-2 Dues for a complete listing of fees.
An individual may be responsible for additional costs imposed by external parties. These costs are not levied by CPA Ontario and are beyond CPA Ontario’s control. Therefore, CPA Ontario is unable to advise individuals of the total gross or net costs (after taking into account reimbursements or other subsidies made available by external parties) of the registration and qualification to membership processes. All costs levied by CPA Ontario have been approved by Council and are found in Regulation 4-2, Dues.
