TORONTO, Nov. 7 /CNW/ - One hundred years ago this month
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) opened its first Canadian office with two people
on staff. From those brave beginnings, PwC now has 440 partners and 4,800
employees in 24 locations across Canada.
Today, in a celebration to honour 100 years of excellence and preserving
and enhancing public trust in the Canadian capital markets, PwC CEO Chris
Clark opened the Toronto Stock Exchange.
"Without faith in the integrity of financial information, our capital
markets would not function the way they do today," says Clark. "At PwC, our
role is to build public trust and provide financial information that is
reliable and relevant to the investing public. Clients, regulators and the
investing public depend upon our vigilance, our principles and our values."
