Being a Financial Analyst in Canada
To be a financial analyst in Canada is typically to work at one of the big 5 banks, a boutique bank, or at an operating company (which can be either public or private). The most common way to become a financial analyst in Canada is to get an undergraduate degree in commerce (BCom) at one of the top universities. Doing an internship in university can help you get your foot in the door, and that internship can then become a full time job after graduation. To further help you prepare, an online certification like the Financial Modeling and Valuation Analyst (FMVA) can help you stand out with employers.
