Practical experience reports

The practical experience reports enable you to self-assess your level of proficiency in the CPA competencies by compiling the tasks completed during a specific period.

You must submit reports in the following situations:

  • You are reaching the end of practical experience authorized for a limited time.
  • You have completed 6 months of practical experience.
  • You have changed positions and your job description has changed significantly.
  • You have changed employers.

The practical experience log is the tool you will use to write your reports and have them approved*. This tool is fully automated and accessible in your file.

* Important: If your mentor is not a member of the Quebec CPA Order, you must print a paper copy of your practical experience report to have it approved by your line supervisor and mentor, and then email it to the Order at for final approval.

Report preparation and approval process

Note: Filing practical experience reports is mandatory. The Order must receive and validate all your reports before it can officially recognize the end of your practical experience program.
