Trusted by Thousands of Practicing CPAs in Canada

CPDFormula is a Canadian marketplace for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) through learning and teaching online where Canadian CPAs are mastering new skills and achieving their goals by learning from an extensive library of courses taught by expert instructors.

Guaranteed Accepted by Canadian CPA Bodies

Canadian CPA Members need to keep a record of their CPD activities and retain the supporting documentation. Imagine there was a better way? We’ll keep track of all of your activity with an annual fee paid during the year, and keep your logs on file for life (longer than the 7 years as requested by Canadian CPA bodies).

CPDFormula activities are all verifiable CPD activities where we will provide the date, course name, the name of the course provider or sponsoring organizations, and the number of hours that you attended.

Each year, in conjunction with the Annual Membership Dues process, Members will submit a CPD Declaration form, declaring whether they met the CPD requirement, did not meet the requirement or are exempt from the requirement. The CPD log and supporting documentation are not filed with the Institute – you retain these. CPA bodies, including CPA Ontario will periodically select a sample of members and ask them to submit their supporting CPD log and related documents.

We’ve got your back!

CPDFormula Goal and Mission Statement

To provide accessible, affordable CPD materials and the highest quality content from eminent speakers in the Accounting profession in Canada.

Is it right for me?

Our primary target market is small firms, managers in industry, and sole practitioners that reside outside large urban centers. These smaller firms find it more difficult to access CPD events than their urban brethren. Our service provides them with an affordable, convenient alternative to attending events.

Great, How Can I Get Started?

The first time you purchase a video on, you’ll need to register as a user. This is a one-time registration – after completion you will never have to fill out this form again.


Verify your order details including your billing information, add coupon code (if applicable), enter your credit card details and you will have instant access to the CPD video that you just purchased. You'll receive an email confirmation of your order.


Watch it now, watch it later – watch it from your computer, watch it on a tablet while lounging on the dock at the cottage.

If you would like to watch at a later date, click on ‘Log In’ at the top right of the screen and then click on ‘Courses’ along the same menu.

Proof of attendance

Once you have watched the CPD video in its entirety you will be automatically sent your official proof of attendance via email that includes title of video, practice area(s), date completed, credits, video length and agenda (if applicable). We will keep your logs on file for life.

How Do You Keep Track Of My Compliance?

You can easily and conveniently access all of your purchased videos all in one spot through your Profile.

Access history

All of your order history and credit history can be accessed in your profile.

Handouts included

Handouts are included for free with the purchase of the video. Follow along, take notes, or print them out to read later.

Compatibility on multiple devices

For your convenience, is optimized for all mobile devices. This means that you can just as easily watch CPD videos on your phone and tablet as on your desktop or laptop computer. Anywhere you have an Internet connection can be a place to complete your accounting Continuing Professional Development.
