Learn baby, learn

Canadian CPAs are improving their nonwork skills with a variety of informal lessons, our latest reader poll shows.

Canadian CPAs are committed to lifelong learning, and not just in their careers. According to our reader poll, 96% of you are taking a class or informal lessons (from a friend or self-taught) to improve a nonwork skill, such as athletics/sport, cooking/baking or speaking a foreign language. Other popular activities you’re endeavouring to master include home improvement and playing a musical instrument or singing. At least 15% of you would also consider taking a class or informal lessons in the coming year on gardening, art/crafts, literature (eg., a book club), photography and wine/beer tasting.
