12th Annual Toronto Trip

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017 – Saturday, October 14th, 2017

General Information

The Toronto Trip is one of the most memorable experiences to be a part of as an ASBAA member. Ten students, including the Toronto Trip Coordinator and accompanied by a faculty advisor, will travel to Toronto to experience the business hub of Canada. Students will visit the head offices of accounting firms within the greater Toronto area, as well as other big businesses in the city. This will be an excellent opportunity to network with professionals from outside of Winnipeg as well as having your resume looked at by the hiring managers of the firms we visit. In addition, students will get a chance to see major Toronto attractions and experience the social scene in the largest city in Canada. You don’t want to miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!
