Eligibility requirements for registration in the CPA qualification program
To be eligible to register with CPA Ontario, an applicant must:
If you are an individual who meets all the above eligibility requirements, the following steps outline the process of becoming a CPA.
A Student 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 Students 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.
A decision of the Registrar not to register or reregister an individual as a Student or to deregister a Student may be appealed by the individual or Student to the CPA Ontario Membership Committee. The parties to an appeal are the individual appealing and the Registrar. The appeal shall be conducted in accordance with CPA Ontario's Rules of Practice and Procedure. The decision of the Membership Committee is final.
