The path to the CPA designation: an enriching experience!


“I am very grateful for the support I received from the Foundation of Quebec CPAs and its donors, and for the guidance and knowledge that my professors and lecturers have given me.

It is important to make higher education more accessible


“Education and knowledge are two of the most valuable resources that exist and thanks to the generosity of donors like you, these two resources are now within the reach of students from more modest backgrounds. Many thanks for your combined efforts and your collective desire to keep making higher education more accessible to everyone.”

Being a CPA has been my goal since I started CEGEP!

“I discovered my keen interest in accounting during the accounting and management technology program. Since then, my motivation has been to keep working and succeeding so that I can acquire the CPA designation. Honestly, I was quite worried about making the transition from CEGEP to university, because I knew that the tuition is much higher, but the financial assistance that you gave me really eased my concerns. Thank you for encouraging me to become a proud CPA!”
