Career Development Mentorship

I enjoyed helping support and encourage my mentee through difficult and challenging times in their career.
Justin Wong CPA, CA Mentor

This program is for CPAs and candidates to develop a mentoring relationship that can lead to insights, opportunities, and improved skills to help you achieve your career goals. This program has two streams:

  • Career Development: Designed for CPAs, candidates, and students to reach their career goals
  • Foreign-Trained Professionals: Designed to help foreign-trained professionals establish their careers in Alberta

Commitment: 12-24 hours of interaction over one year (in-person, phone, and email)

Note: This program is not intended to meet the PER mentorship requirements. If you are a PEP Candidate or CPA looking to verify professional experience requirements, please refer to the PER Mentorship Program.

Please note that the CPA Career Development Mentorship Program is not the same as the Practical Experience Requirements (PER) Mentorship Program.

The PER Mentorship Program is the mandatory program for CPA Candidates to meet their practical experience requirements.
