My name is Jeremy Bordeleau and I am a staff accountant at PwC. I have many interests and skills that you can learn about below. Please visit my social media pages. The links are to the right.
While accounting has the stereotypical stigmaof being a boring career, I have enjoyed practicing and learning accounting ever since my first class in University. I was so eager to get involved in the accounting world that I joined the co-operative education program in University and worked two terms with two separate accounting firms. Each experience only made me more excited to finish my degree and become an accountant on a more permanent basis. My main goal is to obtain my CA from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountancy (CICA).
For three years, I was a kayaker for the Canadian Canoe/Kayak team. I represented Canada at numerous world cup events throughout those years. In 2007, myself and three of my teammates won a silver medal at the Pan American Games in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.
In 2008, I retired from the sport I spent most of my life doing to complete my undergraduate degree in accounting. I have just completed the undergraduate program at Saint Mary's University and I am in the middle of obtaining membership into the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountancy with PwC.
All my life I have loved to work with computers. I am very proficient with many different types of software, both specialized in the accounting profession and not.
I have spent two tax seasons working with CCH's TaxPrep suite of tax preparation software. Additionaly, I am very skilled with Microsoft Excel, this includes using visual basic to create complex macros for advanced functionality.
I started at PwC as a co-op student in 2011 for their private client services division.
At PBC, I developed Excel files that used company databases to help predict future sales of PBC products and sent them to district managers in the Atlantic region.
At Collins Barrow Nova Scotia, I prepared personal tax returns for clients during the busy tax season.
During my time as a university student, I travelled the world representing Canada on the CanoeKayak national team. [See Below]
When I was not paddling, I earned Dean's List achievement awards two years in a row for excellent grades in my accounting courses.
I was a member of the Canadian National Team for CanoeKayak from 2005 to 2008. In that time, I traveled to Brazil, Florida, and to many countries across Europe. I have earned medals nationally and internationally.
