 CPA Canada Competency Map Survey Invitation

As a valued member of The Institute of Internal Auditors Canada, we invite you to participate in a critical CPA Canada Internal Auditors Survey to help gather information about potential future skills internal auditors will need to be successful.

The University of Waterloo Centre for Information Integrity and Information System Assurance (UWCISA), with the support of The Institute of Internal Auditors Canada, has been commissioned by the CPA Canada Competency Map Task Force and the Foresight team to help them envision what skills internal auditors might need in the future as they work on updating the CPA Canada Competency Map. Because your insights will directly impact the task force, your opinions are very important to us. Completing this survey is a great way to have your opinion heard as it will influence the next generation of the CPA Canada Competency Map!

The online survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary. Survey results will be shared only in aggregate form. All personal information will be kept strictly confidential and will not be shared with any person or group that is not associated with this study. We will collect demographic information, such as age group and gender, to assess whether responses differ based on this information. However, no individuals or organizations will be identified, nor will individual survey information be shared. This study has been reviewed by and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee. You can access the survey by clicking on the link below.
