Mentorship: A new component of the CPA practical experience requirements

Learn more about the CPA mentorship program as both a student/candidate and a potential mentor.

Mentorship is a mandatory component of the Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) practical experience requirements. Future CPAs must have an approved CPA mentor before they can begin their qualifying term.

Give back and invest in the future of the CPA profession by becoming a CPA mentor. Your involvement will help future CPAs achieve the required competencies they need to earn their CPA designation. Learn about your role as mentor, the program's benefits and how you can get involved.

Using PERT, CPA mentors must document any discussions that they have had with their mentee and any concerns that they may have about the competency development of the student/candidate.

The CPA Mentor Match portal facilitates mentoring relationships between mentors and future CPAs. If you have been waiting to be matched, this is a great way to speed up the process.


Jointly presented by CPA Canada and CPA Ontario, The ONE is the must-attend, multi-track event of the year, designed for all CPAs who want to be at the top of their game.

Our Firm Directory allows you to search for Canadian CPA firms using our interactive map as well as other criteria.
