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 stygma of 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 acocunting 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 permananent 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 distric 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 acheivement 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 travelled to Brazil, Florida, and to many countries across Europe. I have earned medals nationally and internationally.
