Unless you intend to land in Quebec, it's not really necessary. Its good if you learn it. But you can still live comfortably in almost all the other provinces without knowing how to say "Good morning" in French.

N700k shocked shocked. Pretty steep but I agree with you on writing exams in old age. It shall definitely end in praise.

Have you thought of writing ACCA and then converting because one would not know how long this CPA-ICAN MRA will take.

TEECANN:


@rainazoe

Yes, I began processing the CPA Ontario's Internationally Trained Accountants' (ITA) path registration.

I quickly realized that my ICAN ACA amounts to little in the conversion process as I was expected to practically challenge most of the papers in the CPA Ontario exams all over (Biko, not at this ol' age again grin) so I kind of abandon the process (the painful part was all the kish I had expended to get registered)

But recently, I have found a way around the matter through CIMA, so I won't have to write CPA Ontario papers again, I'll just apply using CIMA for direct CPA membership through the MRA (mutual recognition agreement) CIMA has with CPA Ontario. Se fini grin

However, the caveat is that from registering for CIMA(using ICAN) to using CIMA to register for CPA Ontario's membership, I will cost around 700k naira (yes, almost a million naira). IMHO, I still prefer to spend it than re-writing those papers.

Another caveat, as an immigrant, you have to sort out your membership of CIMA before stepping foot in Canada, if you start the process of taking CIMA exams or converting your ICAN to CIMA after landing, they wont accept it (It's on CPA Ontario website)

These stuffs are long and windy but it with diligent research and prompt action, they are doable.


It will end in praise IJN!

Please did you use your UCI number only or with COPR to attend the courses?
I have the new UCI but still waiting for my PPR, will I be allowed to attend the courses? I need something to be doing to keep busy

You don't have to get PPR to attend the course. Any document that shows your UCI is sufficient. I completed my course in March. I'm yet to get PPR

You might want to read a few pages back/do a quick Google search with key words like "Nairaland/life in canada/living in Ottawa," and I also think Maternal and others did some justice to it.

I have been learning using Duolingo app for a while now. It's fun.

You can also use hellochat to try out what you have learnt, it allows you meet and chat with native french speakers that are interested in English. So yall sort of help each other.

@TEECAN,

I'm also ICAN member and i've been searching how to avoid writing exams. I was happy when I saw your post, however on checking CPA Ontario's website, it states that admission criteria for CIMA members include "Have qualified as a professional accountant by completing the entire CIMA program of studies". CIMA website also says that ICAN members with over 5 years of relevant work experience (relevant to CIMA's Practical Experience Requirement) enters directly into the Strategic level case study. A mandatory workshop must be attended before taking the case study exam. which means only the case study exam will be done but its still not the entire CIMA program of study as required by CPA. So please clarify how you plan to convert ICAN to CIMA to CPA.

Thanks.
