CPD Technical FAQs

Q: Where is the link to send a paper PD report?

The details of CPD must be entered into the online tool; CPA Nova Scotia does not provide a paper report or accept firm records.  All supporting documentation related to CPD must be maintained by the member for 4 years.

Q: How do I submit an exemption request online?

Once on the entry screen, click “Submit a CPD Exemption Request”.  If you do have any hours to report in the period for which you are requesting the exemption, record your hours first by clicking on “Submit CPD Hours for Current Year”.  Once you have entered the hours, do not submit the declaration from this screen; go back to the entry screen and then click “Submit a CPD Exemption Request” and follow the process required.
