Providing audit services and financial reporting to the middle market
Audits are more than just evaluations and maintenance of financial statements. An audit represents an opportunity to learn about your business and how to conquer the challenges you face.
At RSM Canada, we are continually transforming our audit capabilities to deliver human insights powered by technology.
RSM Canada’s audit is a dynamic discipline based on our auditors’ deep understanding of our clients’ industries, enterprise structures, aspirations and challenges. Our evolving ecosystem of technology relationships and advanced digital tools enable us to tailor audit services to your circumstances, and ultimately, provide you and your stakeholders—including the board, shareholders, customers and bankers—with actionable insights relevant to your business.
This innovative approach is supported by three pillars—automation and artificial intelligence, data analytics and digital audit experience—to increase efficiency, minimize disruption and surface new information. Our technically astute and digitally savvy auditors deliver efficient audit solutions and insights that provide broader business value to our clients.

Audit services capabilities and approach
Understanding your organization
We approach each audit intending to deliver a high-quality, independent audit that is also focused on gleaning outputs to create more value for you, whether it is to help you identify internal control gaps or to provide vital recommendations to prepare for a potential transaction down the road. Because we value the deep relationships we have with our clients, we can also add value by keeping you informed of business and industry trends, best practices and bouncing around ideas to help you grow your business.
We want to be the first person you call when you are facing a new business challenge or opportunity.
Our proprietary audit methodology, RSM Orb, is designed to deliver audit services geared to the unique needs of the dynamic middle market clients we serve.
By bringing innovation and advanced digital tools to our audit methodology, we minimize disruption for you and your teams, automate routine processes to increase efficiency, and analyze your complex data sets to surface new insights and information you can use to improve your business and prepare for future events, such as an initial public offering or special purpose acquisition company transaction, global expansion, system implementations, process improvements or another business activity.
We find that our clients appreciate our access to proprietary industry, economic and other research that enhances our ability to analyze their data and provide insights into ways they may not be able to on their own. These additional insights are intended to inform broader operational and strategic business decisions you need to make to achieve your business goals.
This is what we mean when we say we deliver human insights powered by technology.
In addition to audit services, RSM Canada professionals use critical thinking to provide appropriate accounting services that will help your business navigate complex financial situations, such as implementing new accounting standards like revenue recognition or lease accounting, adapting financial software, improving internal controls, or managing global compliance needs, all tailored to your needs and aspirations.
