What our people say
“As I approach the end of my CPA program journey and prepare to write the CFE in September, I’m happy to know I will be supported by my mentors as well as my colleagues. I will be receiving 1-on-1 coaching from my CPA mentor, who has successfully written the CFE, and personalized guidance throughout the process. It’s comforting to know that I also have colleagues who have gone through the same process, and they have valuable advice to share. Working with PwC Canada also gave me the opportunity to develop my critical thinking skills and time management. These were invaluable in my CPA program journey.”
Preparing for CFE 2023
“Having just completed the CPA process with PwC, I can say that what I was told about the program and the people at PwC is true. The extra preparation provided by the PwC program was helpful, but what really made the difference was knowing I had colleagues and friends who had been in the same situation and could help normalize this weird experience.”
