MNP Expands Presence in Prince George
MNP’s Acquisition of Deloitte’s Prince George Office to Add More Resources and Complementary Experiences to Better Serve the Marketplace

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2019, CALGARY, AB – MNP, Canada’s fifth-largest national accounting and business consulting firm, announced today that MNP has acquired Deloitte’s Prince George (PG) practice and will transition the two offices together, effective September 9, 2019. MNP has 21 locations across B.C. with the firm’s strategic plan calling for continued growth in the province and its regions.


“We have continued to see strong growth in the northern B.C. region. Prince George and the surrounding communities were identified as key locations with diversified economy offering opportunities to support our strategic plans for growth and express our commitment to the Northern B.C. marketplace,” said Darren Turchansky, MNP’s Executive Vice President of the B.C. Region. “As we continue to grow our firm to serve the needs of this region, we are excited to welcome a well-established and respected accounting and business consulting team that shares complementary experiences and an unwavering commitment to serving this marketplace.”


The Partners of the Deloitte PG practice said they were most excited to join MNP because of its relationship-based culture. “MNP offers the best of both worlds—the scope and services of a national firm together with the culture, personalized approach and community commitment of a local office. We know joining MNP will be a good fit for our clients and our team and we are optimistic about the future,” said Cindy Thomson, a Partner transitioning to MNP.


Since 1958, MNP has grown to more than 80 offices across Canada and has more than 800 partners and 5,000 team members. MNP has also been recognized as one of the 50 Best Employers in Canada by AON Hewitt for 11 consecutive years—and this past year celebrated its 60th anniversary. 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, technology solutions, cross-border taxation and much more. MNP also serves a wide variety of clients in diverse industries, including all the client and industry groups Deloitte PG currently serves.


“This acquisition is a perfect example of how we can provide our clients the edge they need to stay competitive and overcome current business and industry challenges,” added Thomson. “Together we are stronger; adding more local resources and specialists and a range of experiences and a complementary perspective of the local PG marketplace—all of which will help to provide our clients with continued value. In addition to more local professionals and resources, MNP, like Deloitte, offers us access to national specialists and professionals. It’s truly a win-win.”

MNP Expands Presence in Prince George. . . 
Deloitte’s PG office has roots that go back to 1913 and the firm has been operating under the Deloitte umbrella for more than 40 years; serving clients in a variety of locations across central and northern B.C., including the Okanagan, Quesnel, Prince George, Vanderhoof, Burns Lake, Smithers, Terrace, Prince Rupert, Fort St. James, Fort St. John, and Dawson Creek, and has one client in Nunavut.


“To maintain our culture, we have been very strategic about who we invite to join our family,” said Turchansky. “The Partners and team members transitioning to MNP share our values and the same entrepreneurial approach to doing business. This is a great opportunity for MNP, our clients and other businesses in the marketplace. We are thrilled to have found the perfect team to join us and we are looking forward to working together to serve the PG and surrounding area marketplace.”


MNP welcomes the office team of 21, with four of the team members— Cindy Thomson, CPA, CA; Greg Sale, CPA, CA; Valerie Eberherr, CPA, CA, and Lorna Wendling, CPA, CA—joining the MNP partnership. The new team will remain in their current location for the short term. As such, MNP will operate two stand-alone offices in PG but will be looking to transition everyone into one location in the near future.
