Enhance Your Skills

The Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance is for individuals aspiring to elevate their technical accounting and finance skills to an intermediate level. Realize your career goals by earning the advanced technical skills demanded by top employers across Canada.

Important Update

The CPA profession has expanded our partnership with post-secondary institutions (PSIs) nationwide to deliver the full suite of courses (entry, technical and applied) required to complete the program.

Select PSIs in Ontario have begun to deliver the courses, and by January 2018 the program will be delivered only by PSIs. This shift will increase the variety of delivery formats, and in some cases allow you to apply for government funding for your courses.
