**Canadian Candidates
Canadian Candidates should note that the CAS Course on Professionalism only satisfies the CIA eligibility requirement for ACIA and FCIA when the CAS course is held in Canada, and when it includes appropriate Canadian content. The June 2018 Toronto Course will satisfy the CAS and CIA requirement.

The Toronto Course is intended for candidates that plan to take exam 6C.

Important update on changes to the CIA Qualification Requirements for Property and Casualty candidates:

Effective in 2019, all Canadian property and casualty (P&C) candidates will be required to have successfully completed the CIA Professionalism Workshop for qualification as an Associate of the CIA (ACIA), and will have to successfully complete the Practice Education Course (PEC) for qualification as a Fellow of the CIA (FCIA). Both courses will be required to receive credit for the CAS Course on Professionalism, a requirement for Associate of the CAS (ACAS).

P&C candidates who complete the Canadian version of the CAS Course on Professionalism (COP) by December 2018 will be exempt from these requirements.

The first offering of the PEC with a P&C track will be in June 2019. The December 2018 offering of the CAS Course on Professionalism in Montreal will be the last offering of the Canadian version of the COP that the CIA will recognize and thus the last offered by the CAS.

Starting in 2019, the CAS will accept successful completion of the CIA's Professionalism Workshop (PW) in addition to the Practice Education Course (PEC) in Canada as meeting the requirements for the CAS Course on Professionalism (COP). While the PEC with P&C material will not be available until 2019 the CIA's PW is currently available for registration and will be recognized in this transition.

Future Locations

Updated July 2017

The Professionalism Education Committee (COPE), which is responsible for developing the Course on Professionalism (COP), has developed the following four year rotating schedule for COP locations. The Committee has selected these cities and rotation in an effort to best serve the candidate audience. As a reminder, candidates should never make travel arrangements prior to registering and receiving a registration confirmation from the CAS. The rotating location schedule is merely offered as an advance planning tool and is subject to change.
