Change in CPD Supporting Documentation

The Board of Directors of CPA Manitoba approved a change to the retention of supporting documentation for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities for a period of three years to a period of five years after any particular year. The amendment to Bylaw 705 (2) was approved by the membership at the CPA Manitoba AGM held on June 24, 2021 and is effective for the year ending December 31, 2021.  The bylaw now reads:

705 Documentation Requirement

705 (2) Such documentation shall be retained for five years after the completion of any particular year and may include certificates of completion, transcripts, evidence of attendance at conferences and seminars, published work, presentations, reports or other such documentation or evidence of completion as may be available.

Starting for CPD learning activities reported in 2021, documentation is required to be retained for five years.
