Canada's leading program for tax practitioners went through a major re-vamp and was launched in September 2012! Students of CPA Canada's In-Depth Tax Course will enjoy a series of improvements as they gain the skills and knowledge to advance from entry-level to experienced tax specialist.

While preserving the curriculum's successful mix of theory and on-the-job experience, we've upgraded the program to respond to changing student needs and the rising complexity of tax practice. We've employed new technologies to deliver the program more efficiently and enhance the learning experience.

Together we believe these changes have dramatically improved the educational power of the In-Depth Tax Course ó for students, employers, and faculty alike.

Registration for the 2014-15 In-Depth Tax Course opens on July 7, 2014 and closes on August 29, 2014. Click here to register.

Discontinuation of In-Depth Tax Course Part III and Development of New Course

In-Depth Tax Course Part III will be offered for the final time in its current format in December 2014 due to the comprehensive re-design of our In-Depth Tax Course.

We are currently in the planning stages for a new course that will include knowledge previously covered in In-Depth Part III. As we move through this course redevelopment process, we want to assure you that materials covered in the original Part III course will not be lost. The original Part III course was comprised of two areas, Corporate Reorganizations and International Tax Topics. International Tax Topics are now covered in the course, Foundations of International Tax. The new course will focus on Corporate Reorganizations. Thus, students will continue to have the opportunity to acquire this knowledge. We are working closely with our curriculum designers to ensure the continuity of knowledge between the original Part III and the new course. Our goal is to unveil the new offering in summer 2015.

We are confident that after this redevelopment process our course offerings will be even more beneficial to the professional development of CPAs across Canada.
