CPAWSB Safety Policy
As public health measures associated with Covid-19 move from being mandated to personal choice, and as part of our ongoing commitment to reviewing exam policies and procedures, CPA exam writers and staff working at exam centres in Western Canada are no longer required to wear masks, attest to their vaccination status, or provide proof of a negative Covid test to attend the exam centre, unless required by the venue.
In line with public health guidance, CPAWSB encourages vaccination and mask wearing to minimize risks associated with Covid-19.
As a condition of writing an in person exam, you must agree to an acknowledgement of risk and waiver of liability, accepting all risks associated with writing an exam in light of COVID-19. This waiver is included in the Training Contract for any registrations submitted after March 31, 2022 and will be sent as a separate agreement for any registrations submitted before March 31, 2022.
In addition, all writers and exam staff will be required to:
- Answer health screening questions before entering the exam centre.
- Adhere to capacity limits.
- Adhere to any safety measures in place at venues.
Anyone who is ill or experiencing Covid-19 symptoms will not be permitted to enter the exam centre.
This policy will be reviewed and updated regularly given the continuously evolving nature of the Covid-19 pandemic. The School reserves the right to amend or revoke this policy at any time as a result of changes to public health guidelines, public health orders, government mandates and restrictions, and/or applicable laws.
