Registration Process


How can I register for the PDWeek 2022?


We recommend that attendees verify whether their employer is organizing a group purchase of conference passes. If that’s the case, please contact the group coordinator who will be able to complete the registration in your name. 

As an individual buyer, an attendee may complete the registration online.

If you are a group coordinator, please review the step-by-step registration process here.


Can I purchase a pass for more than one day?


Attendees can purchase 1, 2, 3, and 4 day passes for this year’s event. They may also select one of the following formats to attend:

1) In-person only

2) In-person and on-demand bundle  – access sessions starting Nov 28, 2022

3) On-demand only – access sessions starting Nov 28, 2022


Do names of registrants need to be provided at the time of registration?


If an attendee is purchasing an individual pass for themselves, they will need to provide their contact details at the time of registration.

If purchasing passes for a group, you don’t need to provide each registrant’s info when you buy the block of passes, they can be input later on. See important dates and deadlines.


Can login information be shared between individual registrants? 


Login access rights are specific to the registered individual; only the person whose name is tied to the registration will receive the CPD certificate.




What are the important dates to know related to registration, payments, changes and cancellations?


  • Early bird Deadline – August 31 2022 – please reference the pricing grid for additional details.
  • Registration Deadline: You may register participants until the final day of the conference, however all registrations taking place after November 11 must include complete participant information at the time of registration. Any registrations without complete information will not be accepted.
    Adding complete attendee information: If you have used TBD as place holders when registering your group(s) you will need to add the attendee information no later than Nov 11, 2022
  • Program Selection Deadline: The deadline to select which day(s) you are attending is Nov 11 2022 – *please note* sessions typically reach capacity early, so it’s recommended to complete this earlier if possible. A registrant after Nov 11 will be required to select their day(s) at time of registration.

What are the accepted methods of payment?


As group coordinator, you receive an invoice once your account is created, with payment options and instructions included on the invoice.

You can pay by:  Direct Deposit or Credit Card.

Please note that if paying by Direct Deposit, we will require that you submit the Proof of Payment to our team at This is needed because at our end, Government of Canada deposits do not include any details on the payment other than the amount. Your assistance sharing details is essential to assisting us in matching your payment to your invoice, so we can then “activate” the registrations in the system.

To hold the rate, payments must be paid within 30 days and no later than the day prior to the event, whichever comes first, for the registration access to remain active.


Are tickets refundable, if they are not required?


Purchases are refundable before September 30, 2022, less the processing fee. After this date, tickets can be transferred to another user, but not refunded.


Is tax added to the posted registration cost?


Yes, 13 % HST is added in addition to the cost of each registration.

Our 2022 program will include our exclusive Executive session on Wednesday Nov 23,  as well as our popular CFO/CAE Speed Mentoring program happening throughout the week. Speed Mentoring sessions are available to all registrants’ packages (please note space is limited for Speed Mentoring so this is offered on a first come basis). If interested please send an email to to hold your spot while the program details are finalized.

CPD credits


Will CPD certificates be issued?


Yes, CPD certificates will be issued at the end of the on-demand period, after February 28, 2023.


How many CPD hours can be completed each day of the conference? 


By purchasing a Day Pass, attendees have access to a minimum of 5 hours of CPD credits (in-person only), and a maximum of 11 CPD credits (on-demand-only or the best value option – in-person /on- demand bundle)

With the 4 Day All Access Pass, attendees can earn up to 44 hours of CPDs.


How will attendees access their earned CPD information?


Our system will generate CPD Certificates based on in-person attendance and/or online login and check in acceptance for on-demand viewing. Certificates will be available through the portal from November 28, 2022 until February 28, 2023 to accommodate  those with on-demand passes.


What are CPD credits used for?


If you are a member of a professional designation (like CPA or CIA), where you are required to take a certain amount of learning and development annually as part of retaining your professional designation, the Career Professional Development hours certification is your proof of the learning hours earned through FMI events.

If not a member of a professional designation, the Certificate can simply be used to show your employer that you attended the learning they paid for.


Group Coordination


How do I qualify for Group Registration?


To qualify for Group Registration you must register a minimum of 5 participants.


Can I complete a group registration by myself?


Yes, a group coordinator can complete the registration for their group online. Please see the step-by-step process below. 


What is the group registration process (step-by-step)?


  1. Group Coordinators registered with FMI will receive a registration package, including a link to the PDWeek order form (for groups of 20 or more).  If you are not registered with us as a group Coordinator, contact us at
  2. Please send the filled in order form back to (note that at that time, the names of individual attendees are not required);
  3. The fmi team will create an account for you and apply the group discount ($50 per pass)
  4. Once the account is created on your behalf, the fmi team will send you:
    1. Your invoice for prompt payment,
    2. Your Account Profile Portal login information, which is where you can assign/re-assign any TBD passes.

Do names of registrants need to be provided at the time of registration?  


If purchasing passes for a group, our new registration system ensures that you don’t need to provide each registrant’s name and details upfront. You can identify the amount of passes you wish to purchase, order them to secure the Early Bird rate, and then assign the passes later on. The system also allows you full flexibility in editing/updating registrants at a later date via your Account Profile.


I need to purchase registrations for multiple cost centres, but I don’t know yet how many to allot to each. How can I manage invoicing to these multiple cost centres with a broad purchase of tickets?


To separate and pay by cost centre, each cost centre group order would need to be processed as a separate registration; each such registration will be assigned its own invoice.

Alternatively, you can do one large group buy for all your cost centres, and then allocate the charges internally on your end.  This has the added benefit of allowing you one access sign-in to make any and all changes to your registrants, and a larger group to make swaps with if you have one registrant who wants to trade days with another.


For group coordination, how can we have visibility to what other coordinators in my team are doing?


Please reach out to us at; our team members will do their best to provide you with the information you require.


If registered as a group, can registrants self-manage changes or does the coordinator have to manage the changes?


If registered as a group, any changes need to be managed by the group coordinator who processed the registration.
