We are very excited to share the news that we will merge with MNP LLP, one of the largest national accounting and business consulting firms across Canada, April 1, 2016. MNP has over 80 offices across the country, with several in Ontario, including Mississauga, Ottawa, Thunder Bay, Toronto, as well as in Montreal. MNP has a growing Technology Risk Services practice and was looking for a like-minded firm to build on their strategic plans for growth in offering Cybersecurity Services and solutions.
At the same time, we were looking to expand our service capability across the country, while offering other specialty consulting and risk services to our valued clients. Over the last few years, both our firms have talked about opportunities to work together. As we got to know each other better, both firms grew quite impressed with each other’s people, experience and expertise. We believe coming together is a win/win situation for our two firms and our clients. We are very excited to have found the perfect firm, one that puts clients first, to join forces with and offer a greater breadth of Enterprise Risk Services to address your growing needs.
As the fifth largest national accounting and business consulting firm, operating for 57 years, MNP has grown their team to more than 3,500 members from Victoria to Montreal, who focus on what matters most—helping individuals and businesses achieve their goals. In addition to tax and accounting expertise, MNP delivers a diverse range of advisory services, including enterprise risk, corporate finance, valuation and litigation support, succession planning, investigative and forensic accounting, cross-border taxation, as well a full-breadth of services in enterprise risk services, including governance, risk management, internal audit, regulatory compliance, business resilience and operational effectiveness.
MNP also serves numerous client groups in the private and public sectors and understands the specialized markets in which our clients operate. MNP has a large national presence and access to hundreds of experts and specialists, as well as access to a global network of accounting firms through Praxity—an international alliance of independent accounting firms. By joining MNP, we are adding more resources, more services and experience to better serve the needs of our clients with all their business needs.
As the marketplace evolves and our client needs become more complex, we are embarking on a new chapter of our story. We believe becoming part of a national firm with a local client service philosophy and greater breadth and depth of resources will serve our clients well and position us for continued success and growth. Coming together will strengthen and deepen our existing leadership and offer our clients business advice specifically tailored to their businesses and industries.
We understand you may have questions about the merger’s effect on the continuity of your relationships with the professionals you have come to know and trust. You can be assured the team of talented professionals currently working with you will remain in place and that this merger will be very seamless. With the added talent and industry expertise MNP brings, any new professionals working with you will be an enhancement of the client service we deliver now. While our name will change eventually, our level of service and responsiveness to our client needs will always remain the same.
Eugene, the Team and I will remain the same. Eugene will join as the firm’s Cyber Security Leader for Eastern Canada and I will become MNP’s National Cybersecurity Leader. We expect the transition to be seamless for our team and you the clients.
We will remain in our present locations and look forward to serving you as part of the MNP team. If you have any questions about this transition, please don’t hesitate to contact us:
