About the job

What is the intent of this process?

The intent is to create a pool of qualified candidates to staff student positions only at the Rimouski office, which is located at 180, avenue de la Cathédrale. This office is located in a unilingual French region, and therefore the language of work is French. For the moment, work is done virtually. However, office presence might be required when the normal operations resume.

As a student in audit, you will be called to:

  • Perform tax audits;
  • Data processing, perform searches in databases and generate reports;
  • Communicate with various internal and external customers; and
  • Supply various administrative support using a variety of software.


Who is the Canada Revenue Agency?

For four consecutive years, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has been named one of Canada's Top 100 Employers. We excel in the areas of employee engagement and performance, training and skills development, community involvement, health and family benefits well-being, diversity and inclusion, and much more.
