CPA Canada Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance (ACAF)

The ACAF will provide the job-ready skills that employers across the country value within the accounting and finance functions of their businesses.

Important change to ACAF program delivery

Effective January 1, 2018, the CPA profession will no longer deliver ACAF applied courses. The profession will continue to offer ACAF prerequisite requirements and technical courses through CPA preparatory courses, while all ACAF courses will be delivered through accredited programs and courses offered by post-secondary institutions (PSIs). Beginning September 2017, select PSIs will begin offering the entire ACAF program. Contact your provincial/regional CPA body for additional information.

Whether you’re a new college graduate from a two-year program, working in an accounting function without a recognized credential, or an internationally trained accountant wanting to work in Canada, the CPA Canada ACAF provides the applied accounting and finance skills necessary to enhance career prospects in accounting and finance.
