RSM launches RSM Canada Alliance

NEWS RELEASE

Toronto,

Member firms will have access to global resources while maintaining independence and culture

RSM, the leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, announced today the launch of the RSM Canada Alliance, a premier affiliation of independent accounting and consulting firms in Canada – a first-of-its-kind in the Canadian accounting industry.

The RSM Canada Alliance will provide its members with access to resources of RSM Canada LLP. Membership in RSM Canada Alliance gives accounting, tax and consulting firms access to the reach and resources of a national firm, while allowing them to maintain their independence and entrepreneurial culture. Member firms will also gain access to new tools, expertise and practice management resources, including technical resources, marketing and business development, practice management, talent management and career development, dedicated client services, and networking opportunities.

Two inaugural firms joined the RSM Canada Alliance effective December 1, 2018: DJB, which has offices in Burlington, Grimsby, Hamilton, St. Catharines and Welland, and NVS Chartered Accountants in Markham.

“The Alliance model is a new concept to Canada, but it is especially suited for our marketplace,” said Harry Blum, managing partner, RSM Canada LLP. “The realities of our geography and our business landscape mean that small businesses are at the heart of our country’s economic engine. When these firms join this program, they will be able to stay true to their Canadian roots while enjoying the benefits and resources of a global firm.”

The RSM Canada Alliance is modeled after RSM’s very successful RSM US Alliance program, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary next year and boasts more than 75 members in 38 states, the Cayman Islands and Puerto Rico.

Blum has appointed Terri Ellis to lead the RSM Canada Alliance program. Ellis has 16 years of experience working with audit, tax and consulting firms. In her previous role as growth & market development partner, she acted as a strategic growth advisor to the RSM Canada leadership team, helping to grow the firm from $35M to $60M in four years.
