Fees and CPD

CPA Saskatchewan is carefully monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) public health risk for any new developments and is committed to ensuring that we accommodate members who have been displaced from their typical work environments.

In response, CPA Saskatchewan will be extending the deadline from April 15, 2020 to May 15, 2020 for you to:

  • Complete your 2019 CPD reporting and declaration as required by Bylaw 23.1;
  • Complete your member registration renewal online as required by Bylaw 10.4; and
  • Pay your annual fees as required by Bylaw 130.1(a).

As part of our legislated mandate, we will continue to enforce all regulatory and compliance matters as we strive to uphold our commitment to protection of the public. Considering the many uncertainties we are committed to remaining flexible in dealing with the circumstances that will arise during this difficult time.

The renewal is due April 15th and must be completed by May 15th to ensure your CPA remains in good standing with CPA Saskatchewan. The renewal is completed online through the CPA SK Portal.

Ethics CPD 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 Saskatchewan regulatory 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
  • Independence/conflict of interest
  • Ethical decision making, approaches, thinking and case studies
  • Ethical business culture
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Honesty in business practice
  • Bribery and corruption
  • Doing the right thing
  • Reputation and risk
  • Whistle-blowing
  • Anti money-laundering
