TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 2016, COURTENAY, B.C. – MNP LLP, one of Canada’s largest national accounting and business consulting firms, announced today that Thorburn Guinan, a Courtenay-based chartered professional accounting firm, will merge with MNP, effective February 1, 2017. While Thorburn Guinan was looking to expand their specialty services to clients, MNP was seeking to add much-needed resources to serve the Comox Valley with a well-respected and client-focused firm that shares the same values.
“MNP has been serving the Comox Valley since 2004 and we have been looking for a like-minded firms to build on our strategic plans for growth in in the region for some time,” said James Byrne, Regional Managing Partner for MNP’s Vancouver Island and Northern B.C. regions. “The economy on Vancouver Island in general, and the Comox Valley in particular, has been making a slow but steady recovery since the recession started in 2009. Although traditional industries like forestry are still economic drivers in the region, there has been more development in hospitality and tourism, agriculture and agri-food and the technology sector, making the Comox Valley one of the fastest growing rural communities in B.C. As the economy of the Comox Valley grows, so do the needs of the business community and we recognize that both the region and our firms have an opportunity to grow together.”
MNP is one of the largest chartered accounting and business consulting firms across Canada with 75 full-and part-time offices, employing over 3,500 team members from coast to coast. In addition to tax and accounting expertise, MNP delivers a diverse range of advisory services, including consulting, enterprise risk, corporate finance, valuation and litigation support, succession planning, estate planning, insolvency and restructuring, investigative and forensic accounting, cross-border taxation and more. The firm serves numerous industries and specialty groups, including Aboriginal Services, Agriculture, Forestry, Manufacturing, Not-for-Profit, Private Enterprise, Professionals, Oilfield Services, Real Estate and Construction, Public Companies, Public Sector, and more.

“As the marketplace evolves and our client needs become more complex, we believe becoming part of a national firm with a local client service philosophy and greater breadth and depth of services and resources will serve our clients well,” said Karen Guinan, Partner, Thorburn Guinan. “We truly believe coming together will strengthen and deepen our existing leadership and offer our clients access to business advice specifically tailored to their businesses and industries so they can stay competitive and profitable.”
