You must have an undergraduate degree with specific subject area coverage to be admitted to the new CPA Professional Education Program (CPA PEP). If you are pursuing a degree in a subject other than accounting, you can get that coverage through our CPA preparatory courses (formerly CPA PREP).

CPA preparatory courses were developed nationally by the profession and are delivered part-time through distance learning or in-class sessions by the provincial (or in some cases regional) bodies.

CPA provincial bodies are also working directly with post-secondary institutions to develop specific course requirements for future students.
