The purpose of CPD

Continuing professional development (CPD) is the maintenance and enhancement of an actuary’s professional knowledge, skills, attitudes and professionalism throughout the individual’s career.  

It is a positive tool that benefits actuaries and is an essential component of the commitment the profession makes to the public to provide actuarial services competently and ethically.  

The CIA has an important role to play in supporting the efforts of actuaries to maintain and enhance that competence and commitment. It also has a duty to ensure that all persons who provide actuarial services in Canada meet standards of learning, professional competence and conduct that are appropriate for the actuarial services they provide. This will strengthen and promote the credibility, reputation and brand of the profession as a whole.
