How:

Approved Training Offices will send postings to the post-secondary institutions in Manitoba by September 7, 2017. These postings will be made available for viewing on September 8, 2017.

Why:

Students interested in pursuing a CPA designation are required to complete 30 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 2018, 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.
