Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Designation
Both the two-year Business-Accounting diploma and three-year Business Administration – Accounting advanced diploma programs offer pathways for students interested in pursuing an Ontario Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation. When recognized as transfer credits towards a qualifying university degree, the two-year Business-Accounting diploma and three-year Business Administration – Accounting advanced diploma support the completion of the CPA Professional Education Program academic requirements.
Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance (ACAF)
The Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) Ontario has advised that the CPA ‘Advanced Certificate in Accounting & Finance’ (ACAF) program will be discontinued. CPA’s market research found that college accounting programs are well regarded in the employer market across Canada and offer the same opportunities.
The path to the CPA designation is unchanged though and once you’ve completed your accounting diploma, assuming you have met minimum grade and GPA requirements, you would be eligible to pathway into Humber’s accounting degree program, the Bachelor of Commerce – Accounting.
Canadian Institute of Bookkeeping
The program meets some of the academic requirements for the Certified Bookkeeper (CB) designation offered by the Canadian Institute of Bookkeeping.
Note: The requirements for licensure are determined by the granting body, which is independent from Humber College. Students are encouraged to obtain the specific requirements directly from the granting body before enrolling.
