You’ve got big plans. We have opportunities to match, and we’re committed to empowering you to become a better you, no matter what you do.
When you join KPMG you’ll be one of over 207,000 professionals providing audit, tax, advisory and business enablement services across 153 countries.
With the support to do things differently, grow personally and professionally and bring your whole self to work, there’s no limit to the impact you can make. Let’s do this.
Join KPMG’s Global Infrastructure Advisory team and play a pivotal role in supporting our Canadian and global clients as they respond to rapidly changing infrastructure markets. Within Canada alone, there are hundreds of billions of dollars to be invested in the successful delivery of major capital infrastructure projects and programs. Both the public and private sectors face increased demands, new technology opportunities, and pressures to deliver maximum returns on investment.
KPMG has the largest dedicated Global Infrastructure Advisory practice and is focused on being the trusted advisor of choice on large-scale investment programs and major infrastructure programs within the Transport, Accommodation, Power and Utilities, Digital, Energy and Mining, and Oil and Gas industries. Beyond Canada, KPMG has a strong global presence in infrastructure markets, and our Canadian team works closely with our colleagues in other countries to support major infrastructure investments in growing economic markets.
We are a team of 45 professionals in Toronto and over 90 professionals nationally, made up of engineers, economists, finance professionals, accountants, consultants, project management professionals, and attorneys, with backgrounds including former owners, contractors, civil servants, and design and construction professionals.
We advise public and private sector clients on all aspects of the infrastructure lifecycle – from project feasibility, through procurement and commercial negotiations, into construction delivery, asset management, and ultimately divestment and reinvestment. This means our team members think strategically and have the technical skills required for financial modelling, cost reviews and due diligence.
At KPMG we continually strive to be a great place to work. We value a positive, inclusive and collaborative team culture that encourages diversity of thought and provides opportunities for our people to develop and grow.
