International students and opportunities

There are many opportunities to accelerate your career in our global network

International students studying at a Canadian university

As part of a global network of firms, we welcome applications from all students and provide opportunity for teaming and experience around the world. We also follow federal immigration legislation, which can restrict whom we hire. But depending on where you’re studying and what permits you have, there may be an opportunity for you with us—or within our global network.

Full-time positions

International students who have completed a program of at least eight months at an eligible Canadian educational institution must apply for a Post-Graduation Work Permit.

This work permit allows international students who have completed their studies to work for us for up to three years, depending on the duration of their course of study. In addition, immigration regulations allow for students who have completed the program of study to work while they’re waiting for a decision on the work permit application, as long as they were a full-time student and did not exceed the allowable hours of work.

At the offer stage, you’ll be asked to provide proof that you’ll be eligible to work in Canada for a minimum of two years following graduation. Our offers will be contingent on this status. We ask for a minimum of two full years in eligibility, as the investment we make in our people is significant. A two-year period also provides enough time for us to support you to obtain your Permanent Resident status, where possible, under the appropriate application stream.

Internship and co-op positions

International students studying at a Canadian institution hold a study permit. Generally, this permit allows a student to work up to 20 hours a week during classes and full-time during scheduled breaks in the academic calendar.

Summer internships: As our summer internships take place during breaks in the academic calendar, your study permit will usually cover this experience.

Winter internships: Although our winter internships take place during the academic year, we require students to work more than 20 hours a week and often require students to suspend their studies. So it’s unlikely that your study permit will allow for this employment opportunity.

Co-op placements: International students completing a co-op degree program where the co-op work placement forms an integral and essential part of their studies need a co-op work permit that specifically allows for these placements. But the work can’t form more than 50% of the total program of study.

Students are responsible for making sure that they meet the criteria of their study permit and that they have a valid social insurance number. At the offer stage, you’ll be asked to provide proof that you’re eligible to work in Canada, as our offers are contingent on this status.

China Sourcing Initiative

Economic growth remains strong in the Asia-Pacific region. As the second largest economy and largest initial public offering (IPO) market globally, China is one of the world's most prominent and dynamic markets. This has created many exciting career opportunities in professional services for local and international talent.

Did you know…
China will replace Wall Street as the world’s largest stock exchange by 2030? Hong Kong’s stock market was the eighth largest in the world and the fourth largest in Asia in terms of market capitalization as of June 2016?

Be part of the excitement—opportunities in China and Hong Kong await you!

The China Sourcing Initiative (CSI) was created in 2007. This initiative provides highly talented students studying in Canada with Chinese knowledge and language skills the opportunity to secure a role in China or Hong Kong. Through CSI we’ve successfully placed hundreds of individuals into opportunities in China and Hong Kong. And many of these individuals have used their international exposure and developed as trusted business advisers to our clients in the growing Asian market.

We recruit talent for Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Macau across the core assurance, risk assurance, tax, deals and consulting lines of service. All CSI applicants will follow the same selection process as candidates based in China and Hong Kong—without having to travel there.
