CPA Student Congress

Organized by university students in collaboration with the Order, the CPA Student Congress is an annual meeting where conferences and educational activities related to accounting are presented to more than 200 students from 13 universities in Quebec. This is a unique opportunity for them to share and exchange their knowledge with colleagues from all over the Quebec province, but also to network with many professional accountants.

2020 EDITION

The CPA 2020 Student Congress was organized by HEC Montréal students with the support of the Quebec CPA Order.

Scheduled for March 20-22, the event had to adapt to a new virtual reality to allow the awards ceremony to the recipient student committees. The Order would like to congratulate all the students and CPA student committees honored during the virtual ceremony done on May 1st as well as the HEC organizing committee for all the planning and organization work accomplished for the realization of this event.
