Note: If you are a transfer in, accredited or International Designate MOU, please contact cpaapplication@cpawsb.ca for next steps.

Note: If you are planning to take all your prerequisite courses through a post-secondary institution, you need to request the required “Appendix” information directly from that post-secondary institution.

Once you have received your study permit, you can submit an admission application with CPAWSB but will be required to provide a copy of your study permit at that time. We require a valid study permit before your application for admission can be approved. 

CPA education programs, including CPA PEP and CPA preparatory courses, require high English proficiency. A minimum of Grade 12 English or Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) level 8 or higher is suggested. Generally, anyone with CLB levels below 8 will need to spend additional time on their studies. Therefore, it is recommended that applicants with CLB levels 7 or below improve their language competence before applying and enrolling in CPA education programs. Language test equivalency charts can be found on the Government of Canada website.
