CPA Certification Program Overview
The CPA certification program is designed to ensure that all CPAs have a strong foundation of ethics, knowledge and skill. CPAs navigate through complexity to drive success across all industries and in organizations of any size. The nationally developed and provincially delivered CPA certification program consists of:
- academic prerequisites with specific area coverage,
- the CPA Professional Education Program, which includes the Common Final Examination (CFE), and
- 30 months of recognized relevant practical experience.
The CPA certification program must be completed within specified timelines as outlined in the Member’s Handbook, Regulation 6-1 (s.13). Please note that the CPA certification program does not award a degree.
