At WEST, we understand the barriers internationally-trained women face in the Canadian workforce. In an effort to assist these women in overcoming the obstacles that prevent them from obtaining suitable employment, WEST offers the Management Training Program (MTP).

Through partnership with the University of Windsor – Odette School of Business and Certified Management Accountants of Ontario (CMA), this dynamic program is delivered in a manner that helps candidates conserve time and financial resources.

MTP is specifically designed for women who have professional experience in strategic financial management and have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to provide leadership, innovation and an integrating perspective to organizational decision making in the Canadian workplace.

MTP provides the foundation required for those pursuing careers as cost accountants or careers in business or government, which require an understanding of accounting and management methodologies.

Students’ competence is emphasized on a wide spectrum of business disciplines and provides the foundation knowledge essential for advanced position in the Canadian business world.

Becoming an Accountant in Canada

by MTP Admin on June 15, 2010 · 0 comments

Many professions in Canada are regulated. This means that individuals employed in these professions have to meet certain licensing requirements and, typically, be members of a regulatory body or association in order to legally do their job.

Regulated professions require several years of post-secondary education, several years of supervised practical experience, and written and/or verbal communication testing to ensure that core skills for the profession are met. Accounting is a regulated profession in Canada.

The MTP program at WEST allows candidates to meet the criteria required to satisfy the CMA regulated requirements for writing the CMA National Exam.

Upon completion of the MTP Program, candidates must complete the CMA Strategic leadership Program to qualify for licensing in Ontario.
