CANADIAN CHARTERED PROFESSIONAL ACCOUNTANT (CPA)
The Canadian Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation prepares you for a life-long, rewarding career with unlimited potential. A CPA is your gateway to a world of exciting opportunities.
The value of the CPA designation is recognized by companies globally. As a Canadian CPA, you have many career choices — multiple opportunities in many roles and in all sectors of the economy, at home and abroad.
Every organization needs an accountant. Every tech startup, financial institution, entertainment company, non-profit, government agency — everyone — needs the skills you can provide as a CPA. You have the widest range of opportunities, so you can choose the environment that you want to work in. Regardless of your industry sector, your job is to be a forward-thinking financial leader and to apply the knowledge you’ve gained from the CPA designation to make important financial and business decisions.
Orbit Institute, in alliance with the Professional Accounting Supplementary School (PASS), the most acclaimed CPA Review provider in Canada, is offering a comprehensive course to prepare aspirants for success in the CPA examination.
CPAs are in demand throughout Canada, as well as internationally — there are thousands of CPAs working around the world, in the Caribbean, Asia, and Europe. CPA Canada offers a host of Mutual Recognition Agreements that allow CPA members to become designated by other associations. This, combined with the fact that the Canadian CPA is one of the world’s largest and most respected designations, means that a CPA could be your opportunity to travel, work and consult around the world.

V. The Immigration Process (Non-Covid Times)
VI. The Immigration Process (During Covid)
•Step 1 – Make a decision you want to come to Canada to pursue a Canadian CPA
•Step 2 – Begin the PR (immigration process) or the process for obtaining a visa as soon as possible.
•Step 3 – Register with PASS and you will be able to start studying, specifically:
•Technical notes and videos – you will receive your technical binder and have access to all technical videos
•Case writing – after watching some introductory videos on cases, you can write practice cases and self mark
Note – registering with PASS is totally separate from the whole immigration process and you should register with PASS as soon as you make a decision to write. PASS is flexible and will move you into a different CFE (no additional cost) if the immigration process takes longer (or for any other reason that you delay writing)
- If you are writing in Ontario, you will need to register with CPA Ontario. CPA Ontario allows you to use any visa that satisfies Immigration Canada requirements If you are just writing the CFE and returning to India a Visitor visa should suffice. Please see Immigration Canada site for further information.
- If you are planning to write in a western province (i.e. Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta or British Columbia) you will need to register with CPA Western School of Business (CPAWSB). CPAWSB requires a study visa. They are, however, a Designated Learning Institution and therefore can provide you with the documentation (i.e. "Appendix to the Study Permit") that will enable you to obtain a study visa.
VII. Fee Info
Students who have an Indian CA are not required to attend Capstone 2 (See IV above). Capstone 2 is, however, very important for passing the CFE, as it allows students the opportunity to write prior CFE cases and have them professionally marked. In order to ensure that students who do not attend Capstone 2 with CPA Canada are well prepared, for this option, PASS has incorporated the prior CFE case writing covered in Capstone 2 into the PASS course.
Students will purchase the cases from Capstone 2 for approximately $250 and then will write these cases and the PASS professional markers will mark them. In the Capstone 2 portion of the course students will have the opportunity to write old Capstone cases for all 3 days of the CFE. This includes 12 cases: 2 Day 1 case, 2 Role Comp Day 2 cases and 8 Day 3 multi cases
•One time registration fee - $125 plus tax = $141.25
•Annual student fee* - $600 plus tax = $678 (if registering between Jan. 1 – June 30) / $300 plus tax = $339 (if registering between July 1 – Dec. 31) (Cdn $)
•CFE fee – $1,500 ($1,695 including tax)
•Travel to Canada to write the CFE – approx. $1,500
•Capstone 2 material - approx. $250 (see point IV above)
*Fee may be less while you are residing outside Canada and not providing accounting services in Canada.
VIII. Optional Add-on Course
Students who take the Optional add-on course will have their prior CFE cases marked by PASS professional markers. Students will need to register for this course.
IX. PASS Company Info
