CPAC launched program for Internationally-trained Accounting and Finance Professionals
CPAC launched program for foreign trained Accounting and Finance Professionals
Partnership with U of T and CGA, funded by Ontario Government
The Chinese Professionals Association of Canada (CPAC) offers a bridging pilot program to help internationally trained accounting and finance professionals gain CGA designation in Ontario and find employment in their profession. The program was financially supported by the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration.
The new program aims to help professionals by providing relevant job experience in Canada through structured employment services, in-depth information on the certification process, workplace culture and communication training, job readiness training, as well as job placement services.
Every program cycle begins with an information session and in-take screening to assess the participants’ skill level. This is then followed by workplace culture and communication training. Employment support, employment counselling, job readiness workshops and job placement services are also part of the program. These components address different needs in one’s career and work in conjunction with each other in support for the ultimate goal of being successful in the accounting/finance profession.
To be eligible for this program, applicants must be permanent resident or citizen of Canada, have relevant accounting/finance education and/or experience, language skills of CLB 7 or higher and be committed to obtaining CGA designation in the near future.
