*Please note the application button will continue to work and is available to applicants in Western Canada. Therefore, apply only when there is an opening in the area of your interest.

During Stage 2, applicants become “prospective contractors” and are assigned a contractor ID and given partial access to the Exam Support Platform (D2L). This platform is used to deliver training, post information, and communicate with contractors.

Prospective contractors are required to complete additional training and specific tasks to ensure they have a more detailed understanding of the exam processes and this role. After completing the training and tasks, prospective contractors will gain access to Stage 3. 

In Stage 3, prospective contractors gain full access to the Exam Support Platform (D2L), with additional resources and exam specific information and are eligible to receive contracts. 

Additionally, prospective contractors have access to the online Contractor Portal which the School uses to collect contractor information and availability for staffing purposes.

Experienced contractors will complete the performance reviews of prospective contractors following at least two exams/contracts. Experienced contractors will also assist with any questions. 

*Stage 3 may or may not apply to all supervisors.

Individuals who successfully complete this stage will be added to the CPAWSB contractor pool.
