2015 CARE Preparation Program 

CPA Ontario offers optional preparation programs for Part-1 and Part-2 of the CARE to assist Applicants who are preparing to write the exam(s).  Applicants enrolling in a preparation program have the option of choosing an in-class module, a materials-only  module and/or practice examinations.

Further details on the CARE can be found in the 2015 CARE Brochure under "Related Items" on the right side of this page. 

Part-1 of the CARE

The preparation program for Part-1 of the CARE is offered as an in-class module or as a materials-only module.

To enable Applicants who live outside of Toronto or Vancouver or who are unable to attend the in-class module, the course materials are available for purchase - this is referred to as the "materials-only" module.

The preparation program for Part-1 is for three days and consists of a review of Canadian Taxation (2 1/2 days) and Canadian Business Law (1/2 day).  The Canadian Rules of Professional Conduct is no longer examinable. Please note that the topics covered in class in Toronto may differ from the topics covered in class in Vancouver.
