John Van Liere , CPA, CA


John is a member of MNP’s Agriculture Services team in Lethbridge. John, who joined MNP in 2000, manages a large client base consisting mostly of agriculture clients. His career working alongside farm immigrants spans well over two decades, including multiple trips to the Netherlands to host presentations on tax and farm program considerations for farmers looking to move to Canada. John’s parents immigrated from the Netherlands, and most of their relatives still live in the there, so John maintains a strong bond with his mother country. His Dutch roots provide a unique skillset in helping many clients immigrating from the Netherlands to Canada.

Growing up, John worked on farms in Southern Alberta, and continues to be directly involved in several agricultural business investments and land ownerships. His fluency in Dutch and knowledge of the European farming system has proven to be an asset for international clients wanting the best possible start in Canadian agriculture.

John earned a Bachelor of Management (BMgt) in accounting from the University of Lethbridge in 1999. He is a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA), qualifying as a Chartered Accountant (CA) in 2002.
