If you are ready to start the PEP, please complete Section 4 of the application for registration as a CPP.

If you fail to submit this form to the Order, your period of practical experience will be recognized only when the documents required to process your request have been received, less 30 days.

Once you are registered as a CPP, you will be able to access the downloadable version of the CPA Canada Handbook, which includes International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE), Accounting Standards for Not-for-Profit Organizations and Accounting Standards for Pension Plans.
