Update on CPA preparatory course assessment delivery and schedule – January 2022 (Semester 1)

Oct 29, 2021
In light of the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, the profession is implementing changes to the January 2022 (Semester 1) CPA preparatory course assessments. 

The January 2022 assessments will continue to be delivered remotely. Students will write their assessments at home or another remote location using their own computers. The assessments will be administered through the D2L Dropbox. If you are planning to write an assessment in Semester 1, ensure that you have:
  • reliable Internet access  
  • word processor (i.e. “.docx” format) and spreadsheet (i.e. “.xlsx” format) applications installed on your computer
  • the hardware, operating, software, and other computer requirements specified in the Learning management system section of the CPA Canada Preparatory Courses Student Guide 
To minimize conflicts for students writing multiple assessments during this evaluation period, the dates of the assessments for January 2022 have been revised. Please review the updated January schedule posted here on our website for assessment dates and deadline.

If you are registered for an exam in January, you will receive further information on the assessment format that will be used for your course on January 6, 2022. Please note the revised assessment format and schedule is for January 2022 only. At this time, all other 2022 exam schedules remain the same and exams will be held at in person exam centres.

We are committed to keeping you informed of updates as we continue to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Please review the regularly-updated FAQs document on the CPA Canada website for valuable information that addresses students’ concerns related to the profession’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including meeting practical experience requirements, conditional admission for courses, and much more.  

Thank you for your patience and flexibility during this ever-evolving situation. We continue to wish you well in your studies.
