FP Canada announced on Nov. 16 the results of the October sitting of the Qualified Associate Financial Planner (QAFP) exam. 

A total of 337 candidates wrote the QAFP exam. The exam pass rate was 62.6%. 

“On behalf of FP Canada, I’d like to congratulate the successful candidates, who displayed focus and dedication to challenge the October QAFP exam,” said Tashia Batstone, President & CEO of FP Canada. “QAFP certification is a great credential as you start your career in financial planning and helping Canadians make the right financial decisions, by offering advice that fits their lives and supports their goals.” 

The candidates were given the choice of writing the exam in-person at a test centre or online through remote proctoring. Approximately 80% of candidates chose to write the QAFP exam through online proctoring, says FP Canada. 

The next QAFP exam will be held on Feb. 1, 2022, and the next CFP exam will be held on Feb. 2 and on Feb. 3, 2022.
