1 Exceptionally, two CFEs are held in 2016.
To register, log into your file during the registration period indicated in the table above and fill out the registration form in the Your final examination section.
A writing centre may be open in each of the following cities :
- Quebec City
The address of the selected centre will be communicated to you when your registration for the Common Final Examination (CFE) is confirmed. Please note that the Order reserves the right not to open a writing centre due to insufficient registrations.
Under agreements with other provinces, you may write the CFE in a writing centre located outside Quebec. In this case, you must make a request when registering.
The CFE is compulsory for all candidates and is held simultaneously in all Canadian provinces. Before being authorized to write the CFE, you must have successfully completed the national program delivered by the Order or the university graduate program. However, it is not necessary to have begun a period of practical experience.
Important: If you do not sit for one of the first two CFEs held after the end of your university graduate program or national program, you must retake the Capstone 1 module/course. Note that you must complete your CPA path within 7 years of your registration at the Order.
Consult the fee schedule to find out the registration fees. Since passing Day 1 is not linked to passing Day 2 and 3, the retest fees are adjusted accordingly.
