CA Reciprocity Professional Development (CARPD)

CA Reciprocity Professional Development

Members who have been admitted into membership with CPA Ontario under Regulation 6-2 (members of Reciprocal Membership (RMA) bodies, Recognized Accounting Bodies and Recognized U.S. State Boards of Accountancy as well as successful Evaluation of Experience (EvE) candidates) are required to complete the CARPD course within two years of their admission to membership date in order to remain in good standing.

The CARPD course consists of approximately 20 hours of online study in Canadian tax, law and ethics, in a modular form. Registrants will have to obtain a grade of 100% per cent on  the quiz at the end of each module to be able to progress to the next module.

Those who have been admitted into membership with CPA Ontario under Regulation 6-2 for members of Reciprocal Membership (RMA) bodies seeking to apply to practice public accounting will still be required, as part of those requirements, to write the CARE (Part 1 and Part 2).

The total fee for the CA Reciprocity Professional Development course is $1,011.35 ($895.00 plus HST).
