Our teams’ close, on-site relationship with the various communities and understanding of their individual situations, values and ancestral culture contribute to enriching exchanges and successful collaborations.

The long-lasting bonds of trust that we have built over the years with the Inuit, Métis and First Nations have created positive partnerships that are helping to set the stage for successful Indigenous organizations and entrepreneurs. The purpose of our support is to:

  • Promote the creation and growth of Indigenous businesses and generate positive spin-offs for the community;
  • Facilitate the planning and implementation of growth generating projects with a view to continuous improvement and sustainable development;
  • Stimulate innovation while respecting existing traditions;
  • Guide and engage key players to ensure strategic governance for community advancement.

The following are some of our advisory services available for entrepreneurs and the community, over and above our assurance and tax services:
