Financial Audit Trainee Program

The Office of the Auditor General of Canada is an approved audit training office recognized by all three accounting institutes. Whatever your chosen designation—Chartered Accountant (CA), Certified General Accountant (CGA), or Certified Management Accountant (CMA)—you can achieve it with us.

We support you in obtaining your designation by giving you

  • paid study time,
  • reimbursement of tuition for your mandatory courses and some related costs, and
  • work experience that meets the requirements of all three accounting programs.

As part of our financial audit trainee program, you will be a member of an audit team responsible for a broad spectrum of audits, from the largest financial audit in Canada (the Government of Canada financial statements) to audits of Crown corporations, federal departments and agencies, territorial governments, and international organizations.

We provide

  • on-the-job coaching,
  • mentoring,
  • internal and external training opportunities, and
  • challenging audit assignments.

We offer excellent benefits to employees at all levels in the organization.

Every fall, we recruit many financial audit trainees. Watch for our job postings in September.


If you will be graduating soon, have an above-average academic record (B+ or better), and are interested in pursuing an accounting designation, join our team!
