Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Designation
Both the two-year Business-Accounting diploma and three-year Business Administration – Accounting advanced diploma programs offer pathways for students interested in pursuing an Ontario Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation. When recognized as transfer credits towards a qualifying university degree, the two-year Business-Accounting diploma and three-year Business Administration – Accounting advanced diploma support the completion of the CPA Professional Education Program academic requirements.
Advanced Certificate in Accounting and Finance (ACAF)
The Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) Ontario has advised that the CPA ‘Advanced Certificate in Accounting & Finance’ (ACAF) program will be discontinued. CPA’s market research found that college accounting programs are well regarded in the employer market across Canada and offer the same opportunities.
The path to the CPA designation is unchanged though and once you’ve completed your accounting diploma, assuming you have met minimum grade and GPA requirements, you would be eligible to pathway into Humber’s accounting degree program, the Bachelor of Commerce – Accounting.
Canadian Institute of Bookkeeping
The program meets some of the academic requirements for the Certified Bookkeeper (CB) designation offered by the Canadian Institute of Bookkeeping.
Note: The requirements for licensure are determined by the granting body, which is independent from Humber College. Students are encouraged to obtain the specific requirements directly from the granting body before enrolling.

Students Make Health and Safety Recommendations for the Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home
Thu, April 11, 2019
Ensuring good physical and psychological health and safety (PH&S) in the workplace is vitally important for all Canadians.
Through an interdisciplinary approach between the Business School and School of Health Sciences, Dr. Suzy Casimiro and her students were invited to visit, investigate and advance the physical and psychological health and safety (PH&S) at Humber Valley Terrace Long Term Care Home, Etobicoke.
Under the supervision of the Executive Director at Humber Valley Terrace, Marjorie Mossman, students identified the physical hazards and explored possible psychosocial hazards of workers within this healthcare setting. By also adopting sections of the new and – the first of its kind in the world, Canadian Standard for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (CSA-Z1003-13), students explored the many ways that jobs can affect health and safety, from potential exposures to physical hazards, to work-related mental health concerns within healthcare settings.
As a result, students were able to make recommendations on how to improve the policies, procedures and offer health & wellness program options. Overall, recommendations focused on improving the physical and organizational environment to lessen risks of injury and illness; from integrated protection from work-related safety and health hazards to the promotion of injury and illness prevention and the introduction of wellness programs- all to advance both workers’ well-being and the organization.
