Who We Are

In Canada, PwC has more than 6,500 partners and staff in locations from St. John's, Newfoundland to Vancouver, British Columbia.

With more than 100 years of excellence in Canada, we provide industry focused assurance, advisory and tax services for public, private and government clients in four areas:

  1. Corporate accountability
  2. Risk management
  3. Structuring and mergers and acquisitions
  4. Performance and process improvement

As part of a larger network of over 180,000 people in 158 countries, we work to provide clients with the best of our collective thinking, experience and solutions to build public trust and enhance value for our clients and their stakeholders.

What We Do

We help business solve problems by providing an extensive selection of services. Services are divided into four areas (Audit and Assurance, Consulting, Deals and Tax) and supported by our Internal Firm Services group:

Audit and Assurance

PwC offers Audit and Assurance services focused on the specific needs of our clients. We support them so they can provide quality information to the capital markets and their other stakeholders. We offer services including:

  • Year-end audits
  • Quarterly reviews
  • Financial accounting advice
  • Regulatory compliance assurance for meeting legislation such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act

Audit efficiency and timely preparation of financial statements are the cornerstones of our Assurance Services. Our worldwide audit methodology connects staff across Canada, and around the world, to access knowledge and share best practices.

Consulting and Deals

Our Consulting and Deals practices provide advice and assistance based on our financial, analytical and business process skills to enhance the performance of companies of all sizes. We provide services relating to:

  • Creating, acquiring and financing businesses
  • Integrating strategic goals into current operations
  • Improving management and control
  • Dealing with crises
  • Restructuring and realizing value

Whether it's a proactive review of a client's operations to improve performance or a valuation on a multi-million dollar, cross-border transaction, our Advisory Services professionals can help. Our clients recognize our ability to draw on our national and international network of professionals to put feet on the ground and deliver fast, proven results.

Tax

PwC's Tax Services professionals work with clients to find and manage their tax opportunities. Every business transaction that our clients make — domestic or international — has direct or indirect tax consequences.

With tax laws constantly changing and pressures for cost-savings ever-present, it is essential for organizations to scrutinize their tax obligations. Linked into our global tax practice, our Canadian tax practice helps clients formulate strategies to reduce taxes, create innovative tax planning and manage reporting burdens.

Internal Firm Services

As a leading Canadian organization with clients and offices across the country, the support of our business depends on in-house staff with specialized skills in the following areas:

  • Administrative Support
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Human Resources/Learning and Education
  • Information Technology
  • Legal Services
  • Marketing and Communications/Knowledge Management
  • Operations
  • Security

Industries

We help clients across a diverse selection of industries. Our industry groups are divided into three areas:

  • Consumer and Industrial Products and Services (CIPS)
  • Financial Services (FS)
  • Technology, Information Communications and Entertainment and Media (TICE)

What We Value

To succeed, we must grow and develop both as individuals and as a business. Our values help us to achieve our growth. We have three core values:

  • Excellence: We deliver what we promise and add value beyond what is expected
  • Teamwork: The best solutions come from working together — with colleagues and clients. Effective teamwork demands strong relationships, respect and sharing with each other
  • Leadership: Being courageous, having a vision which inspires and motivates others, and demonstrating personal integrity are the defining characteristics of leadership in our business

Our Values are governed by a Code of Conduct that ensures a framework for ethical decision making and mutual respect.

How We Work

We use our network, experience, industry knowledge and business understanding to build trust and create value for clients.

Because of the size of our organization, we are able to serve clients locally and yet draw on a larger network of knowledge and global best practices. When reviewing any of our service or industry information, be sure to select the listing of local contacts to get in touch with one of our professionals in your area.
