In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CIFP and CSI have suspended all in-person exams in Canada until further notice. This has affected the ability of some students to complete their education requirements for CFP certification.
If you are a CIFP or CSI student who has been impacted by this and who has completed all other courses in your FP Canada Core and/or Advanced Curriculum stream, the FP Canada Institute is now allowing you to enrol in the CFP Professional Education Program (and the pre-requisite Introduction to Professional Ethics course). This exception will allow you to continue with your preparation towards the next sitting of the CFP exam in November 2020 or later.
|Program||Courses Completed||Missing Course|
|CSI Stream 1||Financial Planning II|
|CSI Stream 2||Financial Planning Supplement|
|CSI Stream 3||Financial Planning Supplement|
|CIFP CFP Certification Program||Income Tax Planning (FP2ITP)|
To confirm your eligibility for the CFP Professional Education Program before registering, students can submit their transcript to FP Canada’s Certificant & Student Services team at email@example.com.
