Governance at RSM

To ensure the sustainability of our business and to promote transparency with our stakeholders.

Code of conduct

To achieve our vision, everyone at RSM works to protect our reputation and deliver service in a way that is aligned with what our clients and the marketplace have come to expect from our firm. Our Code of Conduct outlines the standards of ethical behaviour for which we hold each other responsible. Grounded in our firm’s core values of respect, integrity, teamwork, excellence and stewardship, the code is tied to our rich history and serves as a guide for our actions.

RSM ethics and compliance hotline

The RSM Ethics and Compliance Hotline allows any RSM employee, client or vendor who sees, suspects or knows about fraudulent, illegal or unethical behaviour to report it. The hotline is staffed by an outside organization that specializes in gathering the information needed to appropriately follow up with a concern. Concerned parties can file a report anytime, day or night, by phone (+1 800 913 5052) or online.

Our commitment to audit quality and professional excellence

RSM’s audit quality report is intended to provide a window into how RSM Canada LLP promotes and monitors audit quality. The report provides information on our audit practice, including various aspects of our system of quality control such as those related to leadership responsibilities, relevant ethical requirements, client acceptance, engagement team management, engagement performance and monitoring.

For us, it’s all about our clients. That’s why we have demanded audit excellence for more than 90 years.

As professionals who provide opinions as to the fairness of financial statements, we define our clients as the users of those financial statements. Our clients are the shareholders of a public company, the owners of a private company and other stakeholders. For auditors, “serving clients” means providing services with objectivity, competence and due care for the benefit of the stakeholders who demand audit excellence.

Our commitment to audit quality and professional excellence provides information for our clients and others on matters directly related to audit quality, such as governance, leadership, independence, audit performance and monitoring.
