Our History

Founded in 2010 by experienced recruitment professionals with a passion for working with Chartered Accountants, we formed a niche that was a first in Toronto to focus on one accounting designation.  As CAs continue to qualify under the legacy CA program, we welcomed the new CPA program and accounting professionals qualifying under the newly created Chartered Professional Accountant designation.  Both CPA-CAs and CPAs can now partner with us for career opportunities.  Canadian Accounting consultants was founded on the principle that you cannot be everything to everyone – our focus and disciplined approach allows us to provide excellent service and deliver quality results.

  • "Working with Bill was great; he would consider my benefits before his goal of completing my placement with a hiring company. My experience with another firm was rather different, the recruiter was pressuring me make a decision of going forward with an interview, when I`ve indicated that I prefer a role with minimum traveling requirement due to my family situation. Bill was very honest about his opinion and provided me with advice best suit my situation."

  • “Overall, I find CAC to be much less “pushy” than other search firms.  I first met John when I was working in public accounting and looking to leave the firm – he contacted me shortly after I had transitioned to industry and I explained that I would not be looking for other opportunities in the foreseeable future. I found John to be very respectful of this. He phoned me a few times during the year simply to check in and see if I was still happy or looking to make a move; we discussed timelines and such. I feel that with other search firms, my inbox seems to always be cluttered with job opportunities (many of which do not match my experience and career goals) – I do not get this from CAC and I am extremely grateful for this."

  • Adele and Bill were extremely attentive and were very good at both prepping for the interview and in following up directly after the interview. As a candidate there is nothing more frustrating than sitting around waiting on feedback from a potential employer.  They ensured that the transfer of information to and from the employer was quick and painless. Unlike other recruitment firms I was sent background information and articles on the potential employer…as a candidate it was great to see the time investment put in by the recruiter to gather this information. They provided me with an opportunity that has already afforded me many great experiences on a professional level and thankfully has pushed my career progression forward very quickly.”
