But WES does not evaluate US CFA for some reason as per my experience. So, I’m expecting the same for US CPA. The difference being, at least I suspect, most of the Australian, and UK accounting qualifications are not pre-qualification based certifications. Meaning, if you are taking UK based accounting qualification you would have to take more than 15 exams, similar to a degree. In contrast, US accounting or finance qualification assesses the pre-qualifications and conduct only 3 or 4 exams to qualify. If you think in this way, your CPA, most probably won’t recognized as a degree in Canada. But your Bachelors would be.
On a side note, my CPA Australia was not evaluated by WES as a full qualification. Also, to fulfill you US CPA eligibility requirements you may have had to taken 120 semester hour bachelors degree and at least post-graduate diploma for another 36 hours. If that is so those could be qualify as two or more certificates one may be 3 or more years bachelor degree.
Because, I have under taken Bachelor degree and Master Degree to be eligible to sit for US CPA exams. Those were evaluated as 4 year bachelor degree and 2 year master degree by ICES. In that case I recommend you to go with ICES rather than WES.
