Compulsory continuing education

All Quebec CPAS are subject to at least one of the two regulations respecting continuing education, depending on whether or not they hold a public accountancy permit:

Only certain retired members have no obligations respecting compulsory continuing education. 

In this section you will find your continuing education obligations, the qualifying criteria and the providers and categories of qualifying activities. Don’t forget to report your hours each year before September 30.
