Working and studying in Canada

Immigration to Canada

ACCA Canada receives many inquiries from ACCA members and student members worldwide who have an interest in working or studying in Canada. ACCA Canada is unable to directly assist individuals immigrating to Canada, and members and students are advised to contact the Canadian High Commission, embassy or consulate in their own country for details of immigration requirements.

Please visit for the department of citizenship and immigration (CIC) in Canada.

Prospective permanent immigrants will need to meet the criteria of a points system which takes into account a number of factors such as education, qualifications, age and family currently in Canada. Details are available at the Citizenship and Immigration Canada website.

We can advise that ACCA members have received considerable education points on the basis of their ACCA qualification.

At the present, a member who holds an Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) designation, is considered to hold a Bachelors degree.
