Become a Mentor

Information on becoming a CPA Atlantic candidate mentor

As a member in good standing, you will provide guidance to aspiring CPAs to help them achieve required competencies, with a focus on developing the essential skills for ethical behaviour, decision-making, problem-solving, communication and leadership.

Mentor Aspiring CPAs

Your role as a CPA mentor does not require you to help CPA students/candidates with their studies, exam preparation, or job search. Instead, you can expect to:
  • provide future CPAs support and insight that can broaden their mindsets
  • give back and invest in the future of the profession
  • enhance your personal growth and professional development from mentoring

The process to become a mentor



There are three ways to get involved in the CPA mentorship program:

  • Volunteer to join the CPA mentoring pool
  • Participate in your organization’s pre-approved program (if applicable)
  • Accept a mentor request from a future CPA
