At KPMG in Canada, we want you to come as you are and make your mark. Grow your own way by learning business skills, partnering with an experienced mentor, building your network, and getting real-world experience before graduation. An internship with KPMG across Audit, Tax and Advisory is an opportunity to build lifetime relationships, to connect with subject matter leaders and to explore the countless opportunities available with KPMG.

If you join us as an audit intern, you will have the opportunity to experience our unique rotational program, allowing you to dive deeper into different business areas of the firm. Both as an individual and as a team, you will begin to understand how you too can make a difference with our clients, colleagues, and communities. You will have the opportunity to explore and learn more about our Audit, Tax, Advisory, or Business Enablement Services.
