Chartered Accountant Student Training (CAST) Program

Effective spring 2013, future recruitment for the Chartered Accountant Student Training (CAST) Program has been incorporated into the Financial Officer and Internal Auditor Recruitment and Development (FORD/IARD) Program.

If you are interested in working for the federal government and would like to pursue an accounting designation, consider applying to the FORD/IARD Program under the direction of the Office of the Comptroller General (OCG). The FORD/IARD Program has existed since 1978 and continues to thrive. It is a key part of the OCG's mandate to build and maintain vibrant professional communities through a range of recruitment and development activities.

We invite you to visit the FORD/IARD website to read more about the program and to learn how you can apply.
