What our people say
“Working at PwC Canada has helped develop my technical and enabling skills, which was key to my success in the CPA program. The mentorship program and peer support available gave me the resources and guidance necessary to overcome study challenges, and ultimately be prepared for the CFE, learning from others experiences.”
Gold medallist for Western Canada, 2019 CFE
“The PwC Canada CPA program was invaluable when it came to preparing for the CFE. From the first day of onboarding, right up until the CFE they guided us through the complex requirements and timelines that we needed to meet in order to qualify to write the CFE. During the exam, I was easily able to address many of the assessment opportunities as the topics covered were things I would normally deal with on a day to day basis at the firm.”

“Having PwC Canada alongside me during CFE leave was key to passing the exam. My study group of colleagues kept me motivated and focused while my mentor provided emotional support,detailed technical feedback and one-on-one meetings to gauge how I was feeling as well as walkthroughs of my weaker technical concepts. We received guidance and exam writing tips from all levels of the firm as well as dedicated case-writing training days to help us mentally prepare for the CFE.”

“PwC Canada mentorship definitely played a part in my success on the CFE. What I liked most was having a mentor who had gone through the same process and understood what I was going through. Knowing that I had someone to ask questions, tips and tricks gave me confidence in the preparation of the CFE.”
