Any comments or experiences shared will be appreciated.
It is a professional qualification, not an academic one, so it will not count as a degree.
While you are waiting for your PR to come through you should seriously think about getting yourself a Bachelor's degree of some sort. Accountancy is a graduate profession in Canada. If you have a degree you will be able to take a short conversion course and get a CGA designation.
