Ethic Hours

Bylaw 23.4 is effective January 1, 2019 and introduces the requirement of Ethics CPD. CPAs have until December 31, 2021 to get 4 verifiable hours of PD related to ethics. The professional ethics requirement can be fulfilled through CPA Saskatchewan or other sources. It is anticipated that the 4 hours would be accumulated through various separate professional ethics learning activities over the three year period. A learning activity related to professional ethics must address the application of ethical principles that are relevant to your work or professional situation. Some examples of ethics PD topics are:

  • CPA Saskatchewanregulatory updates covering the CPA Saskatchewan Act, Bylaws, Board Rules and Rules of Professional Conduct
  • Regulatory updates that are relevant and appropriate to the CPA’s role or industry
  • Professional conduct
  • Corporate codes of conduct

  • Ethical business culture
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Honesty in business practice
  • Bribery and corruption
