Mar 14, 2022 9:10:19 AM

Updated February 2023

You may have heard that thanks to artificial intelligence, bookkeepers and accounting technicians are being automated out of existence.

The World Economic Forum identified accounting, payroll and bookkeeping clerks as the second most at-risk jobs in Canada, set to become increasingly redundant by 2025.

But that's based on the notion that bookkeepers are little more than data entry clerks. For those who are eager to take on more analytical and advisory responsibilities, the move to automation can actually be a good thing.

“This can be a positive change for students who want to pursue a career in accounting. They can focus more energy on analyzing the accounting information rather than being trapped in repetition."

Mar 2, 2022 8:59:59 AM

Updated December 2022

Paralegals in Ontario have a special status that they don’t enjoy anywhere else in Canada. 

In this province, paralegals can actually represent clients independently (just like a lawyer does) for certain legal matters. 

They can set up a private practice, specialize in a certain area of law, and in some cases, advocate for clients in court. 

However, paralegals must operate within certain limits. They can’t do everything a lawyer can...and there are several important differences between these two career paths. 

Take a look at how the roles stack up so you can decide which one is best for you
