CPA Canada’s Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance (ACAF)
The ACAF program is being discontinued. We are working with the Post Secondary Institutions for a smooth winddown of ACAF that ensures students are enabled to finish the program before one of the final ACAF National Examinations in September 2019, January 2020 or February 2021 or transition to an alternative course of study.
While the CPA profession stands behind the quality of the ACAF program, it has not gained traction in the market, suggesting that other accounting diploma programs across the country are meeting the existing market needs. For this reason, the CPA profession is winding down its involvement with the ACAF program. Those students who are part-way through the program will be able to transition to the accounting program offered by their post-secondary institution.
More information is available through CPA Canada. Students currently enrolled in the ACAF program should contact their school for more information regarding courses and program transition.
The CPA profession values the collaborative partnership we share with the post-secondary sector and we are committed to supporting accounting education in Canada. This change will have no impact on the CPA professional education program. If you have any further questions contact CPA Saskatchewan via email or by phone at 306-359-0272.
