Office Environment

Headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with a fully operational satellite office in Steinbach, Manitoba, our team is constantly growing and is currently comprised of approximately 40 professionals, each fully committed to helping our clients and fellow team members successfully reach their objectives.

With our relaxed, family oriented office environment comes flexibility and familiarity in our student support. On the job training is provided by more senior team members and by the office as a whole. Our relatively simple office structure ensures that the entire office interacts daily, guaranteeing that senior management notes each team members performance.

We offer the highest level of service to our clients, with client relationships encouraged at all staff levels. In our team you will not simply be performing the work behind the scenes, as opportunities present themselves, we will place you in direct contact with our clients, allowing you to see the impact of your work on their businesses.

The combination of our diverse client base, strong relationships, open office environment and flexible support for our students’ results in what we believe to be an ideal environment for maximum learning and progression through the CPA Professional Education Program.

Client Base

Our clients consist of professionals, businesses and not for profit organizations located throughout Southern Manitoba. Our client base covers nearly every organizational structure and industry sector. This diversity enables us to provide our students with a broad spectrum of practical experience to complement their professional studies.

Student Experience & Support

Students are assigned a mentor, but are encouraged to seek answers from any member of our team as required. Students are also supported with assistance on issues they are facing in their course of studies. Additional support offered for students includes payment of all annual student dues, module fees, Densmore CFE prep fees and common final examination fees. In addition, time off is provided for studying prior to and during examinations.


ONBusiness is a rapidly growing firm with opportunities for advancement regularly presenting themselves. As a result of the experience and support offered to our students we find that they quickly progress to more senior roles within our firm. Our unique approach to client relationships and product delivery allows our team members to quickly define themselves as professionals within the community.

Flexible Employment

We recognize that there is life outside of work! As a result we do our best to ensure a reasonable balance between the expectations placed on our team members and their personal lives. This is displayed through flexible work hours, summer Friday’s off and part time arrangements for students still completing their university studies.

“The culture at ONBusiness borders on family because upper management is approachable and everyone is invested in the success of the company and my success as a co-op student.  Through my time as a co-op student I’ve been exposed to more than I thought I would.  Having worked on files of different sizes, in different industries and with various co-workers has taught me more than the classroom and has made university level accounting classes easier.”

Laura, Co-op Student

“One of my favorite things about working at ONBusiness is the support that they offer. I experienced this first hand in my time there. The staff takes time to help out the new employees or those who do not have very much experience in accounting.  There are frequent meetings to keep everyone on the same page and to keep the staff up on any changes that need to be known.”

Braden, Co-op Student

“I wanted to work at ONBusiness because I believe this firm focuses on the growth of their students, rather than simply assigning them menial tasks. The assignments I complete at ONBusiness are relevant to what I would expect to be doing following graduation, and these tasks help foster development with respect to accounting knowledge.”

– Nick, Co-op Student
