Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Program information

The Graduate Diploma in Accounting is a professional program accredited by the Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) of Ontario. The program emphasizes integration, problem solving, decision making and other CPA-enabling competencies to prepare prospective CPAs for the completion of the Professional Education Program (PEP) and Common Final Examination (CFE), and for their careers. The hybrid learning model provides significant face-to-face time in small classes with highly qualified instructors.

Upon successful completion of the Graduate Diploma in Accounting, students will receive credit for the first four modules of CPA Canada’s PEP, including Core 1, Core 2 and all four elective modules (assurance, finance, performance management and tax) and be eligible to enter the PEP at the Capstone 1 module. Students will be able to write the CFE within 12 months of completing the Graduate Diploma in Accounting, saving time in achieving their CPAs.

Admission requirements

In addition to the general admission requirements for graduate studies at UOIT , Graduate Diploma in Accounting applicants must meet the following program-specific requirements:

  • Cumulative B+ average (GPA: 3.3 on a 4.3 scale or 77 to 79 per cent) or higher in courses required for admission to the CPA PEP.
  • Grade of C (60 per cent) or higher in courses required for admission to the CPA PEP.
  • UOIT students must successfully complete all courses specified for the UOIT Bachelor of Commerce Accounting Major.
