Exempt from CPD Requirements

Members who believe they meet the criteria for an exemption from full CPD requirements or wish to apply for an exemption due to medical leave, maternity/parental leave or special circumstances may apply for an exemption in the calendar year in which a member is eligible for the exemption or by the April 1st reporting deadline of the following calendar year. 

For your convenience, the CPD exemption form can be completed annually as part of the membership renewal process through the CPA Manitoba member portal.
