REGISTRATION INFORMATION & CONDITIONS

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 enrolment two weeks prior to 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 prior to 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.

Refunds

No refund will be made for cancellations received after the Passport deadline date or two(2) weeks prior to any other course date.  Refunds for withdrawals before those dates will be subject to a handling charge of $30 plus HST per course.

Lunches

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

Accommodations

Registrants are responsible for their own accommodation arrangements.

Course material

All course material will be distributed at the course site (to the registered participants only), unless otherwise stated in the course description.

Entrepreneurial Material

Please note, because of the ownership of the material, CPA Nova Scotia cannot provide entrepreneurial materials (third party) to participants who do not attend a course.


Non-members

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


Times

Please refer to course descriptions for course times.  Check course outlines on the events section for the most recent changes.
