Our Commitment to the Agriculture Industry

Agriculture – it’s one of Canada’s core industries. It has also always been one of MNP’s key areas of focus. We have invested more time and resources into understanding agriculture than any other accounting or business consulting firm in Canada.

Working with governments, as well as numerous industry and specialty groups, our Agriculture specialists have deep roots in the industry. Some come from family farm backgrounds, while others continue to operate a farm of their own; all are extremely passionate about agriculture.

Our team brings a range of specialized expertise in regards to all aspects of agricultural business – from primary producers through to food & beverage processors. Learn more about our tailored service offerings below.

Our Tailored Services for Agriculture

With over 15,000 agriculture clients and a team of over 600 agriculture specialists, MNP knows agriculture. We recognize the complexity of this industry and the constantly fluctuating factors that can significantly impact your success; from changes in weather patterns to global economic shifts to transportation challenges. For operations to not only survive but thrive in this ever-changing climate, Canadian producers need insight and strategies for both mitigating risk and creating opportunity.

Assurance and Accounting

Whatever the size of your operation, you require accurate and timely financial reporting, including audits, reviews and compilations.
