Can I find a job in Toronto or Montreal in big four audit companies (PwC; KPMG; EY; Deloitte) or in a bank. I have 3 year that I work in a audit company I am finishing ACCA (Association of chartered certified Accountants). Is ACCA recognised in Canada by employers.

You might try searching the major newspapers, such as the Montreal gazette, and the Toronto Star!
However, if moving to Quebec Province to work, you must be fluent in French!
You could also contact those companies you listed, and ask whether ACCA is recognized in Canada!
If it is recognized in the US I assume also in Canada since both countries generally work together!

There is a common misconception that one must be fluent in French to work in Montreal.

While fluency in French is certainly an asset, if you have the skills a particular company is looking for many will overlook your lack of bilingualism.

Upon graduating from university, my French was terrible when I was hired by a big downtown firm. (In fact, I have a unilingual friend who works for a large accounting firm in MTL.)
