Pre-Approved Program Route Offices

Companies and organizations where future CPAs will gain relevant experience in training positions pre-approved by the profession.

Pre-Approved Program Route (PPR) refers to an employer training program that is approved by a provincial professional body in advance of hiring any specific employee. These programs have been specifically designed to provide CPA candidates all their required practical experience within 30 months.

Please note that practical-experience requirements for public accounting are, for the most part, not additional requirements. They are specific choices you can make within the general requirements for CPA certification.

If you have any questions about CPA practical-experience requirements or PPR organizations, please contact the CPA Atlantic School of Business.

The following list identifies all PPR offices in the Atlantic Canada and Bermuda:
