MANDATORY ETHICS doesn't have to mean sitting through long lectures and boring content. This ethics bundle, created specifically for Canadian CPAs, includes four excellent courses rated 4.49 out of 5 overall through over 1600 evaluations.
We use scenarios, stories, interviews and real-world news examples to apply the Code of Ethics to every-day work life and decision making.

Our Canadian CPA ethics experts, Brian and Laura Friedrich, both FCPAs, are engaged at the highest national and international level of Accounting ethics, working with CPA Canada, IFAC and IESBA. Brian and Laura were also consulting experts on our Ethical Client Acquisition course by Bruce Fern.
Here's what you can expect to learn about in this bundle:
Ethics Conversations: Building an ethics-based culture
This course explores the conversations "at the top" which address important ethical leadership issues such as the tone at the top, diversity, systems and metrics. In Chapter 2, the course explores the "mood in the middle" and how middle managers can use tools available to them to foster and develop an ethics-based culture within their teams.
Ethics: Mis and Disinformation and Professional Skepticism
This course explores the importance of professional skepticism as a key element of meeting professional ethical principles and will teach you how to identify, assess and address common techniques for misrepresentation and manipulation of data, such as averages, samples, graphs and charts. You will also learn to recognize common types of bias and how to mitigate the negative impact of biases on decision-making.
Client Acquisition: Ethical strategies for attracting and retaining great clients
Whether you serve internal or external clients, this course will help you to develop trust and credibility throughout the client relationship, while remaining consistent and compliant with the International Code of Ethics for Accountants. You will also learn how to build confidence and influence, to make persuasive recommendations and how to renew and expand your client relationship.
Conflicts Of Interest Unpacked
This course explores and explains the important difference between real and perceived conflicts of interest. You'll also learn how conflict of interest considerations appear in laws, regulations and professional codes of conduct.

Selected Evaluation Comments from Canadian CPAs
"This was great material! It wasn't at all what I expected, which was actually perfect. I liked that it challenged me to look at my own unconscious biases, and to not necessarily be negative about them, but to be aware and look for ways to minimize potential biases. Thank you for delivering very timely and appropriate material!"
"This may well have been the best course of any kind that I have taken because: 1 Everything flowed: click on Chap 1, module 1 and when I completed, the module was checked and moved onto the next module. 2 The time the information on the paper material tied was displayed on the material 3 There were takeaways, quotes, wisdom points, other people involved, etc. Thank you very much."
"This was honestly the best PD course I've taken with CPA. The format was excellent - it was so nice to be able to listen to the course while cooking dinner or driving in the car, and the App made it all seamless. Also, the presenters were fantastic - kept it really interesting and I really enjoyed the content."
"This was an excellent course that goes through not just the client acquisition but how to effectively communicate and improve on communication techniques with clients to assist in all aspects of the client acquisition, retention and expansion of future work within a practice."
"Interesting examples and thought provoking content; more broad based information than the typical ethics vs the accountant seminars that have been offered in past."
