Assurance and Accounting

We have been working with our Indigenous clients in the areas of audit, accounting and bookkeeping for more than three decades. Through our team’s expertise and knowledge, we understand the unique reporting needs of Indigenous organizations.

We employ rigorous quality controls to provide an opinion on your financial statements and ensure presentation is in accordance with the relevant standards.

Financial reporting is required by Nation members, banks, investors and federal and provincial funders. We stay on top of the latest reporting standards for our Indigenous clients and keep you apprised of any changes that may impact your organization.

Where an assurance engagement isn’t needed, we can also provide accounting and bookkeeping services — including monthly assistance with data entry and reconciliations, accounting and payroll software conversions and training on year-end financial statement preparation.
