Pre-approved practical experience program directory

Many accounting firms and some large organizations have established a pre-approved practical experience program with the Order where the trainees’ tasks are reviewed prior to their arrival. A training principal, a CPA member, is responsible for assigning candidates into the pre-approved tasks of the program.

To assist you in your job search, the Order has put together a pre-approved practical experience program directory. Remember that you can do a period of practical experience in any organization in Canada, whether or not it has a pre-approved program.

Note: : If you wish to obtain a CPA auditor permit and the firm you are looking for is not listed in the directory, write to

In addition to the directory, see the offers on the Emploi CPA.
