Professional Development at CPA Ontario

CPA Ontario supports and encourages life-long learning for Members and does this in a number of ways:

  • through the identification, development and delivery of PD seminars and Executive Development programs
  • through on-going collaboration with other provinces and CPA Canada in determining resources and needs for Member PD support, and reciprocity arrangements for costs and accessibility of PD programs throughout the country
  • through the creation and strengthening of long-term strategic partnerships with Ontario Universities
  • through consultation with Members - by way of surveys, course evaluations, task forces and focusgroups


Professional development is delivered through two primary means:

Our Seminar Series of Courses are half-day, one-day and two-day seminars.  Each year, CPA Ontario offers over 650 seminars in over 26 locations throughout the province.  These seminars are delivered in a Fall/Winter Program, which runs September to February, and in a Spring/Summer Program, which runs from May to July.  We produce a PD Catalogue for each Program, with the Fall/Winter PD Catalogue available in August and the Spring/Summer PD Catalogue available in March.

Our Finance and Leadership series of Executive Programs are a series of off-site retreat programs for acquiring the requisite skills, knowledge and competencies for building and enhancing organizational value and careers.  Developed and taught by our acclaimed faculty, these programs present you with the rare opportunity to step away from the pressures of work to join a group of peers and focus on what you need to do to excel in today's competitive business environment.
