Who we are You know those big cities that still feel like small towns? Where everyone’s friendly and helps each other out?

That’s like Grant Thornton. Except here we’re all professionals and there isn’t a mayor or a general store. What we’re trying to say is that we’re a very different kind of professional services firm where culture is at the heart of who we are and what we do.

We employ about 2000 people across Canada, and we truly care about helping our clients, colleagues, and communities thrive.

That’s what’s most important to us. We’re building a special organization that’s purpose driven and as we grow we always want to remember what your favourite milkshake flavour is (ours is grape, just so you know).

They will determine if they are in compliance with Canada’s PCMLTFA and its regulations. A key aspect of this role will be providing reports identifying the gaps, if any, and making recommendations to assist the client in closing those gaps and / or enhancing their compliance programs.

    Just imagine being part of a team that puts we before me, where flexibility is a mindset, and where you trust your colleagues have your back.

    At Grant Thornton, you’ll work with inspiring leaders who support your development, both personally and professionally. This is a place where your insatiable curiosity enables you to think, see and hear from a variety of perspectives, a place where every day is different and having the courage to grow is part of who you are.
