Inventory Accountant

At Canada Drives, we believe the experience of buying a vehicle should be easy and satisfying. Since 2010, we have used technology to simplify the process of finding the right vehicle for any Canadian of all financial circumstances. Through our online application process today we connect nearly half a million Canadians per year with dealerships across Canada.

For our next decade, we are excited to launch 100% online vehicle purchasing, with wide selection, great deals, and with speedy at-home delivery. Our vision is that buying and financing a vehicle will be fair, fast, simple and seamless.

We are looking to add a new position to our growing Finance team.
