General (All Registrations)

Cancellation of courses by CPA NS

1.      CPA Nova Scotia reserves the right to cancel courses due to low registration.  Courses with insufficient enrollment two weeks before course date will be cancelled.  Registrants will be advised and may enroll in alternative courses (subject to availability) or receive a full refund or course credit.

2.      If a course is cancelled due to severe weather conditions notice will be sent to your preferred email in the CPA Nova Scotia database by 7:00 am the morning of the course. 

Please be advised in rare instances CPA NS may be forced to cancel a course on short notice due to circumstances outside our control.  Best efforts to contact participants before the course start time are based on information provided by the participants (please provide an accurate email address where requested, as this is the best method of contacting individuals on short notice).  CPA NS's liability, if any, is limited to the course fees paid.


No refund and/or credits will be made for cancellations received later than 5 business days before any course date. 


Lunches are not included in the price of a course or served (unless otherwise indicated). 


Registrants are responsible for their accommodation arrangements.

Course material

All course material will be uploaded to My CPD Portal (website) four business days before the course date. CPA Nova Scotia no longer prints course materials. 


Registration is open to sufficiently qualified non-members, and we encourage your participation.


Please refer to course descriptions for course times.  


Confirmation for course registrations are e-mailed approximately one week before the course date. If you do not receive an email before the course date, please contact the office.  
Please note: confirmation is provided as a courtesy, it is not an integral part of the registration process.  All assessments apply whether or not a registrant receives a confirmation e-mail.


PD courses will take place in the CPA Nova Scotia Learning Centre, 300 – 1871 Hollis St., Halifax.  All locations will be indicated on the course confirmations.  Course locations and dates are subject to change.  Please see individual course descriptions.
