Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia

Attention PA1 and PA2 students
The multiple choice questions for PA1 and PA2 assignment 8 were updated at the start of the session. If you downloaded these questions very early in the session, there is a chance that you may have an outdated version.
If you are in PA1 and your multiple choice question d begins with 'Snap Inc.' and question e begins with 'Brandon', you have the updated version. If not, please ensure you enter OLE and retrieve the correct assignment.
If you are in PA2, please simply be careful to ensure you work with the most current version for session 4 (summer) in OLE. Question 1a begins with Gypsum Chemicals Inc.

Recent Course Assignment Violations
All CGA students are required to act in compliance with the National Academic Integrity Policy and thus must also be aware of what constitutes a violation and its consequences.
Here are some examples of recent course assignment violations to raise your awareness and aid in your understanding of this important policy.
The economy may have slowed but demand for CGA members and students are still strong. For proof, see the Hot Jobs page updated weekly. If you haven’t already signed up to CGAjobs.org, do so. And don’t forget to post your resumé to the site.
