Ready to Apply?

Follow these steps to begin your CPA journey.

We are currently not accepting applications to the CPA pre-certification programs.

With the launch of our brand-new CPA Portal on February 27, the application process for new prospects will change. It is designed to make your CPA journey smoother and more enjoyable.

To accommodate the launch of the new system, we will not be accepting applications until Feb. 27, 2024, when the new platform goes live.

In the meantime, you can connect with your Student Recruitment Advisor who will provide guidance on your next steps and will inform you when you can apply to the CPA pre-certification program.

As you may know, the Canadian federal government announced on January 22, 2024, that study permit applications for most international students will now require a Provincial Letter of Attestation (PAL).

As with all affected education institutions, CPA Atlantic School is waiting for further instruction from provincial governments before being able to support this new process. It is hoped that letters can be available by March 31, 2024. 

As per the IRCC website, there are several exceptions to the requirement for a PAL. Two that are noteworthy for CPA applicants are as follows:

  • If you are in Canada and are applying for a study permit extension
  • If you are in Canada and have a work permit that was issued prior to June 7, 2023

The full list of exceptions is available on the IRCC website

If you would like a DLI letter so that you can apply to extend an existing unexpired study permit, or you have a work permit issued prior to June 7, 2023, and would like to obtain a study permit, please contact us to obtain a DLI letter of acceptance to submit to IRCC.

Please know that CPA Atlantic School will provide updates as more information becomes available.
