CPA student congress

Organized by university students in collaboration with the Order, the CPA Student Congress is an annual meeting featuring educational conferences and activities related to accounting directed to over 200 students in 15 Quebec universities. The congress provides a unique opportunity for them to share and exchange their knowledge with fellow students from across Quebec, and to network with a number of accounting professionals.


The 2018 congress is organized by students from the École des sciences de la gestion de l'Université du Québec à Montréal, with support from the Quebec CPA Order. It will be held from March 23 to 25 at Estrimont Suites & Spa.
