RSM Canada (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – recently welcomed McGovern Hurley LLP as the newest member firm of the RSM Canada Alliance. McGovern Hurley is the third Ontario-based firm to join the RSM Canada Alliance since December 2018 when RSM Canada announced the launch of the premier affiliation of independent accounting and consulting firms in Canada – a first-of-its-kind model in the Canadian accounting industry.

As part of the RSM Canada Alliance, McGovern Hurley will benefit from the global resources of RSM Canada LLP, while maintaining its independent status. McGovern Hurley, with its eight partners and nearly 60 staff members, will gain access to tools, expertise and practice management resources—including technical, marketing and business development, practice management, talent management and career development resources—along with dedicated client services and networking opportunities.

Located in North Toronto, McGovern Hurley offers audit services, tax planning, financial reporting, estate planning, business valuations, due diligence and indirect tax services. The firm serves public, private and not-for-profit clients and has specialized expertise in serving small cap public companies.

“We are excited to welcome McGovern Hurley and its outstanding professionals to the Alliance family,” said Terri Ellis, leader of the RSM Canada Alliance. “They have built an excellent reputation in the Canadian marketplace, and their proximity to our office in Toronto provides easy opportunity for collaboration and client referrals. We are pleased that McGovern Hurley, like other RSM Canada Alliance members, will benefit from leveraging the RSM global brand and from access to RSM’s breadth of services, while staying aligned with their Canadian roots and culture.”

Building the RSM Canada Alliance across Canada is an important part of RSM Canada’s overall strategic plan, which includes expansion in key Canadian markets, with both fully integrated RSM Canada offices in major metropolitan areas and a robust alliance of independently owned firms across the country.
