June 2020 CPA assessments

The profession remains committed to keeping you on track in your journey to becoming a CPA. In light of the physical-distancing restrictions in place in some provinces until June 30, the profession is announcing some changes to the June 2020 CPA preparatory course assessments, including assessment delivery, the schedule, requirements, and the timing of future communications. As previously communicated, these national assessments will no longer take place in-person at exam writing centres but will be delivered remotely. Students will write their assessments at home using their own computers on the evaluation dates and times specified below. The assessments will be administered through the D2L DropBox.

For CPA PEP candidates

To prepare to write your assessment, ensure that you have:

  • reliable Internet access 
  • word processor (i.e. “.docx” format) and spreadsheet (i.e. “.xlsx” format) applications installed on your computer
  • the hardware, operating, software, and other computer requirements specified in the Learning management system section of the CPA Canada Professional Education Program Candidate Guide

Previously, the dates scheduled for the assessments were June 29-30, 2020; however, to minimize conflicts for candidates writing multiple assessments during this evaluation period, the assessments will be written over five (5) business days. Each assessment will commence at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
