Student Opportunities at Crowe MacKay LLP

Student Hub

We are committed to providing diverse opportunities that develop your skills and knowledge, supporting you as a future CPA.

Looking for an Accounting Firm that Will Help You Succeed?

At Crowe MacKay, we are dedicated to the on-going training and development of accounting professionals.

We provide the essential elements in the form of high-quality practical experience, peer support, and day-to-day training necessary to achieve your professional accounting designation.

A firm built on the foundation of local roots with the strength of a global network. We think big without feeling big - meaning you matter to us and we take that matter seriously. We are committed to giving you a diverse range of opportunities to develop your skills and knowledge so you are confident in addressing client issues.

Established in 1969, we are a regional firm with offices across northern and western Canada with a rich history of creating growth and maximizing potential. We are a team of innovators, technical professionals, and marketers, but most importantly, we are people-focused and know the real value of a career is built through lasting relationships.

Career development is as important to us as it is to you

Our hands-on training will provide you with the skills required to successfully challenge your exams. We know work experience alone does not always provide students with the guidance necessary to meet the rigorous demands of the CPA program.

How do we help articling students and accounting co-op students succeed?

We understand your career is a marathon, not a sprint, and to succeed you need the proper supports in place. Crowe MacKay students receive both in-house coaching assistance and external National Common Final Examination (CFE) preparation courses to support them in creating the foundation of their careers. We are transparent in our expectations and work with you to build your future.
