NOTE: CGA NL is in merger discussions as part of the
effort to unify the profession in Newfoundland and Labrador, and across
Canada. At this time, it is expected that CGA NL will not admit new
students after 2013. We ask all prospective students to contact the CGA NL office before proceeding with their application to discuss their designation path. See our Merger Update page for news and information.
CGA’s Program of Professional Studies is open to permanent residents of Newfoundland and Labrador, and accepts applicants with a variety of educational backgrounds. Applicants may apply with a university degree, a college diploma, partial post-secondary credits, or with a high school diploma.
Effective communication skills and a solid background in business mathematics and algebra are essential to an aspiring professional accountant. Accordingly, upon entering the CGA program you should have a minimum Grade 12 level of mathematics and English writing and comprehension skills. You will be expected to use appropriate vocabulary, grammar, spelling and punctuation in your written work in the CGA program. While CGA courses provide a resource to develop effective writing techniques, students who are not proficient in English writing should consider upgrading course prior to applying for admission to the CGA program.
