KPMG – Why Work For Us?


What's your this?

Is it matching your big ideas with even bigger business opportunities? Is it opening doors and closing deals?

Maybe it’s trusting your instincts, relying on your knowledge, calculating the risks,
and you knowing you’ve got advisors you can count on when the countdown is on.

Is your “this” working with a team that keeps your head ahead of the curve and ensures precision on every decision?

Is it the thinking that comes before the transactions, the many minds behind the numbers, and having top talent in the boardroom?

No matter what your “this” is, when you face all that’s in front of you, with KPMG behind you, it makes all the difference.

Lets do this.

Let's do this.

At KPMG we believe there are as many versions of success as there are people, and we’re committed to empowering you to become a better you no matter what you do.

That’s why we’ve created a diverse and inclusive environment and an award-winning culture that values thinking and doing differently and working together with our clients, communities and each other.

With a personalized benefits program tailored to your individual needs, a strong commitment to health and wellness and a culture of continuous learning we take care of you, so that you can take care of business.




Mentorship with mental muscle

At KPMG, we understand the benefits that lifelong learning provides for your growth, both professionally and personally. With a focus on thinking and doing differently, we empower KPMG employees to keep their heads ahead of the curve and support them to achieve success through a range of training and development programs:

KPMG Business School (KBS) - KBS is a virtual business school that offers a variety of learning opportunities both formal and on-the-job for you to develop technical, business, and leadership skills. It provides one central location through which you can access the firm’s catalogue of nationally developed, nationally delivered courses.

Easily track your learning progress – Part of KBS, CLiX manages your learning records, including your personal learning history, Continuous Professional Education (CPE) credits, and, where applicable, curriculum certification to help you track your progress as you grow your career.

Access KPMG's CPA program - Take advantage of one of Canada's best CPA programs, designed to help you through the process successfully. 

A clear path to success - KPMG has developed Learning Paths that help you clearly understand the requirements of your job role - what you must achieve in your work to be successful, and what actions you can take to get there. Learning Paths, designed for every role from entry-level associate to partner, also help you to understand what it takes to get to the next level as you grow your career with us.

Keep pace with change - KLearn, KPMG's interactive Web conferencing tool, allows real-time learning and collaboration: you can access KLearn anytime, anywhere, from any KPMG computer. Create a CFE study group, problem solve with colleagues, or discuss recent changes to professional standards.

We know that diversity fosters innovation and inclusion builds community.

When employees are able to bring their whole selves to work, they are more dedicated to deliver value-added service to our clients. We’ve made Inclusion and Diversity an inherent part of our culture, and it’s integrated into the way we do business.

We’ve aligned our goals with our inclusive vision by identifying three fundamental areas where we can make the biggest impact:

  • Embedding an Inclusive Culture
  • Creating a Mentally Healthy Workplace
  • Being Leaders in Our Community

We proudly support our people through our Employee Resource Groups (ERG’s) for our five priority groups:

  • Indigenous Peoples
  • Persons with Disability
  • LGBT+ Community
  • Visible Minorities
  • Women

Our values create a sense of shared identity within the KPMG organization, which is a network of over 7,000 team members working in 40 offices in our three core service areas. Our values help us to work together in the most effective and fulfilling way. They define what we stand for and how we do things.

We lead by example – at all levels acting in a way that exemplifies what we expect of each other and our clients

We work together – bringing out the best in each other and creating strong and successful working relationships

We respect the individual – respecting people for who they are and for their knowledge, skills, and experience as individuals and team members

We seek the facts and provide insight – challenging assumptions, pursuing facts, and strengthening our reputation as trusted and objective business advisers

We are open and honest in our communication – sharing information, insight, and advice frequently and constructively and managing tough situations with courage and candor

We are committed to our communities – acting as responsible corporate citizens and broadening our skills, experience, and perspectives through work in our communities

Above all, we act with integrity – constantly striving to uphold the highest professional standards, provide sound advice, and rigorously maintain our independence
