National Accounting Firm Expands Into Three B.C. Locations

Bruce Martin & Associa​tes merges with MNP to benefit marketplace with enhanced services

THURSDAY, JULY 7, 2016, CALGARY, AB – MNP LLP, one of Canada’s largest national accounting and business consulting firms, announced today that Bruce Martin & Associates LLP, a Kamloops-based accounting firm with offices in Clearwater and Fort St. John, will merge with MNP, effective September 1, 2016. While Bruce Martin was looking to add much-needed resources and expand their specialty services to clients, MNP was looking to establish a presence in Kamloops with a well-respected and client-focused firm that shares the same values.

This merger will add two new office locations for MNP, in Kamloops and Clearwater, while adding more resources to MNP’s Fort St. John office. The Bruce Martin & Associate teams in Kamloops and Clearwater will remain in their current locations and will be rebranded as MNP as of September 1. The Fort St. John staff will move into the MNP Fort St. John office sometime after the effective date.

“MNP has 18 offices in B.C. and we have been looking for like-minded firms to build on our strategic plans for growth in the Kamloops area while adding more talent to our Fort St. John location,” said Darren Turchansky, MNP’s Executive Vice President of the B.C. Region. “We are thrilled to have the Bruce Martin teams join the MNP family. As the B.C. economy continues to grow, we recognize that both our firms have an opportunity to grow together.”

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, investigative and forensic accounting, cross-border taxation and more.

MNP serves a diverse group of clients, including private enterprise, professionals, agriculture, forestry, oil and gas, trades, retail and services and more—and truly understands our clients’ needs,” said Bruce Martin, Managing Partner, Bruce Martin & Associates. “We truly believe coming together will strengthen and deepen our existing leadership and offer our clients business advice specifically tailored to their business so they can continue to overcome current business and industry challenges.”
