We arrived here with a little money and a lot of hope. We didn’t have jobs lined up, but I was prepared to do whatever I needed to build a life. It was serendipitous that I saw the posting for this role at PwC Canada, since I actually had a similar role with PwC India. It felt like a complete stroke of luck, and the timing was perfect.
My colleagues at PwC Canada helped me adjust to life here, not just in regard to my new role, but also to the culture of the office—and they’ve even helped me navigate Canadian winter.
During the pandemic, I’ve felt confident in my job because of all PwC Canada is doing to support its people. This includes sharing regular firm communications, providing access to health and wellness experts and parenting supports, and even giving extra paid time off. All of this has helped me feel comfortable buying a house and starting to grow our family.
In fact, we welcomed a new family member in April 2021: a baby girl, who has quickly taught us “on-the-job training” as parents!
