Note: While this workshop has been developed with the new CPA ethics requirement in mind, and all participants will receive a certificate of attendance, each provincial chapter has its own rules when it comes to recognizing PD. We encourage members to verify on a case-by-case basis that ACFO-ACAF courses and events meet their provincial requirements.
