2013 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Declaration
Each year, in conjunction with the Annual Membership Dues process, all Members must submit a CPD Declaration Form to the
Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario (registered name of The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario)("CPA Ontario").
Non-retired or newly retired Members complete CPD Declaration Form 4-5A/D declaring whether they met or are exempt from the CPD requirement.
Retired Members complete CPD Declaration Form 4-5F, declaring that they continue to meet the CPD retired exemption. Members who indicate that
they did not comply with the CPD requirement MUST also submit a CPD Plan of Action Form 4-5B. Only one plan of action will be
accepted in each three-year CPD cycle.
Public Accounting Licence (PAL):
Members, who hold a Public Accounting Licence (PAL) or may be applying for a PAL, must complete the annual minimum CPD requirements of 20 hours,
including at least 10 hours of verifiable CPD. The CPD must be completed in activities directly related to the competencies needed to provide
public accounting services. Exemptions from the 2013 CPD requirements or failure to comply with the annual minimum CPD requirements impact
your ability to renew or apply for a public accounting licence.
CPD Supporting Documentation:
Members are required to retain professional development supporting documentation (for example, the course description or outline) and records
of enrolment. It is recommended that records be kept for a total of seven years for possible review or audit by CPA Ontario. There is an online
CPD tracking tool available throughout the year where Members may enter, update and track their professional development information. Any hours
earned through attendance at CPA Ontario courses will be automatically populated.
All information and documentation required by this application MUST be submitted in full by the Member no later than June 1, 2014 without a late payment
or June 30, 2014 with a late payment. Members, who fail to provide all information and produce all documents and other materials as requested by
the Registrar or, in extraordinary circumstances where such documentation is not available, provide alternate proof satisfactory to the Registrar,
by the June 30, 2014 deadline may be suspended.
