If you’re a legacy CGA student, learn the transition guidelines for completing the CPA certification program and how to complete your CGA practical experience requirements (PER).
The CPA profession is committed to ensuring that education you completed for a legacy designation will be recognized towards the CPA designation, and you will therefore make the transition to the appropriate point in the CPA education program.
Transition Student Guidelines identifies the key CPA transition and requirement completion deadlines, as well as the consequences for not meeting these deadlines.
All practical experience recognized for qualification towards the CGA designation will be recognized equally towards the CPA designation until the CPA transition deadlines identified in the Transition Student Guidelines.
If you have any questions about the CGA legacy practical experience requirements, please contact your provincial/regional body.
All CGA-approved transfer credits from post-secondary institutions (PSIs), as well as all PSI-equivalent courses taken in the CGA Program of Professional Studies, will be recognized for admission to CPA preparatory courses and CPA PEP until the CPA transition deadlines as identified in Transition Student Guidelines.
CGA Levels 1 through 4 will most likely cover the prerequisite knowledge requirements for admission to CPA PEP. However, all transitioning students — CGA, CMA and CA — will most likely require some bridging to prepare them for CPA PEP.
Bridging material has been developed by the CPA profession and is available to all transitioning students.
Please contact CPA Québec for more information about transitions.
