Registration Terms & Conditions
Registration & Payment
Payment of seminar fees are due at the time of registration, as we do not invoice for seminar registrations. We accept Visa and Mastercard but please do not include your credit card information in any email correspondence. Cheques should be made payable to CPABC. All registrations are subject to GST regardless of employer or employment status.
Only registered individuals may attend a seminar. For live and archived webinars, each attendee or viewer must be registered for that webinar or product. The sharing of a single registration among multiple individuals, including the sharing of webinar access and/or webinar screening with non-registered individuals, is strictly prohibited.
Intellectual Property & Copyright Content
All CPABC seminars and webinars contain intellectual property and copyright content. No parts of the seminar or webinar - presentation, video, audio, electronic or printed material - may be recorded, screenshot, reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means.
Confirmation of Registration
A confirmation of registration will be emailed to the registrant no later than 1 business day upon receipt of registration. If you do not receive your confirmation prior to the course date, please contact the PD Department at firstname.lastname@example.org. The confirmation notice is provided as a courtesy - all assessments apply whether or not a registrant receives a confirmation notice.
Seminar Venues & Dates
Seminar venues and dates are subject to change. Every effort is made to ensure that current information is available. Please check the PD website for the latest information on the status of seminars.
Registration Cancellations, Transfers & Refunds
CPABC will continue waiving our $25 and $50 cancellation fee on registrations to CPABC PD seminars held through to August 31, 2023. This only applies to emailed cancellation requests received before 7:00AM two business days prior to the seminar start date. Cancellations will not be accepted after this time, and full course fees, or full passport credits, will apply.
If a registrant falls ill, requiring them to cancel after 7:00AM two business days prior to the seminar date, accommodations may be made to provide access to attend a future offering of the same course (if available) at the earliest availability – the substituted course may be in-person or on-demand depending upon what is available at the time. Note that a $50 administrative fee will apply in such cases.
CPABC incurs overhead costs that cannot be avoided unless cancellations are received in advance of the deadlines. If cancellations are received after the deadline, fees to cover these costs will apply. All cancellations and/or transfers must be received in writing. Telephone notifications will not be accepted. Cancellations/transfers received at least 10 calendar days prior to the seminar date will result in a full refund. Cancellations/transfers received less than 10 calendar days but more than two full business days prior to the seminar date are subject to an administration fee of $50 for full and half-day seminars, or $25 for 2-hour seminars. Registrants who do not show up for a seminar, and/or who do not notify CPABC PD in writing at least two full business days prior to the seminar date (statutory holidays are not considered business days) will be assessed the full cost of the seminar. There will be no refunds or credits in this case. Substitution of attendee is permitted up to and including the day of the seminar (with the exception of Personal Passport, Mini Passport, PD+ Pass, and PD Academic Pass registrations, where substitutions of attendees are not permissible under any circumstance). Special terms and conditions apply to CPABC Executive Programs.
Seminar Cancellations by CPABC
CPABC PD may have to postpone or cancel seminars due to insufficient enrolment, in which case our liability will be limited to a refund of the registration fee. In the case of a PD Passport registration, our liability will be limited to restoring the PD Passport day used to register for the seminar – under no circumstances will the PD Passport fee itself be refunded, credited, or carried forward. Registrants will be notified by email one week prior to the seminar date if a seminar is cancelled. Members are urged to register early to ensure adequate enrolment.
Seminar Leader Substitution
In the event of unforeseen scheduling issues, we reserve the right to substitute a fully qualified speaker who is not listed in the course description.
Meals at In-Person Seminars
Unless otherwise stated, lunch and coffee breaks are provided at full-day seminars, and only coffee breaks (not lunch) are provided for half-day seminars. Pastries will be provided at seminars that begin in the morning, except for free PD sessions. If you have allergies or special meal considerations, please let us know at the time of registration.
The registration fees for web-based seminars are payable at the time of registration. CPABC reserves the right to cancel seminars with insufficient enrolment. In such cases, a full refund will be made. Once a registrant receives their Login ID and Password to the web-based seminar, no refunds or substitutions will be granted.
Flexi PD Passport Registrations
Note that individuals using the Flexi PD Passport are providing consent to share that registration information with the "principal holder" (or official passport contact person) of that Flexi PD Passport.
Audio/Video Recording & Photography
CPABC may occasionally audio/video record sessions, or take photographs at seminars. Recordings and images may be edited and distributed in various publications, including social media, as well as educational products. If you have an concerns, please email the PD Department at email@example.com.
