Three Alberta firms join RSM Canada

Offices in Calgary, Red Deer and Edmonton join provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market


Toronto, ON,

RSM, the leading global provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, is pleased to announce that three leading Alberta firms from Calgary, Red Deer and Edmonton are joining forces with RSM Canada. RSM Canada will acquire substantially all their assets, with the transactions expected to close by early November 2018, pending final regulatory approvals and customary closing conditions.

The transactions establish RSM Canada’s presence in Alberta and Western Canada, with offices in the three locations, and a team that includes a combined total of 29 partners and more than 200 professionals, who serve nearly 11,000 clients in Alberta and beyond.

“We’re excited to welcome these three outstanding firms to RSM Canada,” said Harry Blum, managing partner, RSM Canada. “These offices bring talented people, solid experience and complementary knowledge and services that reinforce RSM Canada’s position as the leading audit, tax and consulting firm focused on serving middle market clients in Canada and beyond. We launched RSM Canada with RSM US LLP in 2017 with the goal of establishing a strong global brand throughout Canada.”

“The offices and RSM professionals in the U.S. are pleased to align ourselves with these distinguished firms,” said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO, RSM US LLP. “The keen insights their teams have in their local markets and in key industries such as oil and gas, real estate, agriculture, government, manufacturing and retail complement ours, and strengthen RSM’s ability to support our substantial client base throughout North America and to offer exciting new opportunities in this important economy for clients in the U.S. and around the world.”

As part of RSM Canada, the new offices will benefit from access to more than 43,000 professionals in over 120 countries around the world and a close working relationship with the firm’s nearest neighbour, RSM US LLP in the United States.

The transactions are part of RSM Canada’s overarching strategy that eyes expansion beyond Toronto and Alberta to key markets across Canada, with RSM Canada offices in major metropolitan areas and a robust alliance of firms in other markets to support client needs.

RSM Canada encompasses RSM Canada LLP, the Canadian member of the RSM International network providing audit and tax services, and RSM Canada Consulting LP, a consulting services firm established by RSM Canada and RSM US. RSM Canada Consulting LP brings expanded consulting services, such as technology and management consulting, security, privacy and risk, financial advisory, transaction and merger and acquisition advisory, to clients in Alberta.

The Calgary office is located at 777 8 Avenue SW First Alberta Place Calgary, AB T2P 3R5, Canada; the Red Deer office at 546 Laura Ave., Red Deer County, AB T4E 0A5, Canada, with an associated office in Sylvan Lake at 10 Hewlett Park Landing #2, Sylvan Lake, AB T4S 2J3, Canada; and the Edmonton office at 10104-103 Ave. NW, 2500 Bell Tower, Edmonton, AB T5J 0H8, Canada.
