Seeking participants for virtual focus groups on practical experience requirements

The CPA profession is seeking the input from students/candidates completing their practical experience requirements, CPA mentors, and employers who hire these students/candidates.

CPA Canada’s Practical Experience Task Force is seeking participants for Virtual Focus Groups to take place between April and June 2019 to discuss their views and opinions about potential upcoming changes to the CPA practical experience requirements (CPA PER). If you would like to participate, please indicate your interest by clicking the appropriate link below and answer a few questions.

STUDENTS/CANDIDATES

If you are a CPA student/candidate and have completed at least one year of qualifying practical experience, please register your interest to participate in the virtual focus groups.

Selected students/candidates will receive a $200 gift card for your time!

EMPLOYERS

As an employer of CPA students/candidates, you play a significant role in the development of future CPAs as they complete their practical experience requirements for CPA certification.

If you have employed CPA students/candidates in the last 12 months, please register your interest to participate in the virtual focus group.

CPA MENTORS

CPA mentors provide guidance to future CPAs, and now the profession would greatly appreciate if you would also provide insight on your mentorship experience as we update the practical experience requirements.

If you have mentored one or more CPA students/candidates in the last 12 months, please register your interest to participate in the virtual focus group.

QUESTIONS

If you have any questions about this process, please contact Cheryl Pereira, Director, National Practical Experience.
