Approved Training Offices will send out postings to the post-secondary institutions in Manitoba by September 6, 2016. These postings will be made available for viewing on September 8, 2016. Postings will be available for viewing in early September online.


Students interested in pursuing a CPA designation are required to complete 36 months of work experience prior to writing the Common Final Exam. If you are a graduating student, this opportunity will allow you to begin working towards the work experience immediately following graduation in June. Some full time students start in May prior to graduation while others choose to start in September. For students who will not be graduating in June 2017, this allows you to begin working towards completing your work experience at the same time that you are completing your degree at The University of Winnipeg
