Corporate passports

1. Who can purchase a Corporate passport?

Corporate passports can be purchased by any corporation, such as a business corporation, a legal entity under public law (professional order, agency from the public and para-public sector, educational institution), a general partnership, a limited liability partnership (LLP), a non-profit organization (NPO) or a cooperative.

2. Which Corporate passport should I buy?

In order to choose the right Corporate passport, you have to know who will use it:

  • The CPA passport will suit the needs of only one CPA.    
  • The Multi-CPA passport is perfect for several CPAs within the same organization.
  • The Multi-user passport will be the most appropriate for CPAs and non-CPAs within the same organization.
For more information on the passports, consult the “General information and prices” page. Full details are provided in the terms and conditions.

3. I am not a member of the Order. May I use a Corporate passport held by my corporation?

Yes, the Multi-user passport can also be used by a non-CPA. 

For more information, consult the “Types of Corporate passports” page. 

4. Must I create a security code to use a Corporate passport?

Yes, if you are the person designated by the corporation holding the Multi-CPA or Multi-user passport and you wish participants from your organization to register themselves to training activities using the passport.

However, it is not necessary if you want to be the only one to manage registrations.

5. May an individual hold a Corporate passport?

No, the passport must belong to a corporation. However, the individual may use it to benefit the corporation. 

6. What is the validity period for the use of a Corporate passport?

The period for the use of the passport is September 1 to August 31 of the season covered by the passport.

7. May I carry over professional development credits (PDC) to the next training season?

Yes, it is possible to carry over your PDC if you purchase a new Corporate passport. 

It is possible to carry over up to 525 PDC for CPA and Multi-CPA passports and up to 675 PDC for a Multi-user passport.

8. May I get a refund for my Corporate passport?

No refund is granted for a Corporate passport once a product or service has been delivered. However, it is possible during the season to:

  • Convert a Corporate passport to à la carte registrations or tool purchases at the going rate at the time of each registration or order made and, if applicable, receive a refund for the difference.
  • Convert a CPA passport to a Multi-CPA passport, a Multi-user passport, or even a CPA Promo. Charges may apply.
