Stratège services comptables inc. joins MNP to offer enhanced services to medical professionals
January 31, 2018, CALGARY, AB – MNP, Canada’s fifth largest national accounting and business consulting firm, is pleased to announce that Montreal-based accounting firm, Stratège services comptables inc. (“Stratège”), will merge with MNP, effective February 1, 2018. While Stratège sought to deliver more specialty services to its clients, including medical professionals, MNP aspired to grow its francophone client base by adding an exceptional team of like-minded professionals experienced in serving the Montreal francophone business community.
“We were attracted by MNP’s reputation as an entrepreneurial-driven ‘family’ where each region and each office has a vested interest in supporting each other’s success. That sense of being part of a true national firm, one team, appealed greatly to us,” said Charles Godbout, co-founding partner at Stratège. “In addition, since our client base is in great part comprised of medical professionals and their practices, MNP’s focus and depth of industry understanding of this sector, was also very important to us. We are convinced that our clients will benefit significantly from our expanded services through MNP.”
Founded in 1958, MNP has grown to over 60 locations across Canada and delivers diverse services and specialized expertise in every sector and area of business. Not only is MNP one of the largest firms in Canada, it has continued to maintain its Canadian roots; focusing on helping Canadian businesses at home and abroad.
“Since first entering the Montreal marketplace in 2011, our office has grown rapidly to include a strong practice, including team members specializing in the medical professionals’ sector. By joining forces with Stratège, we are expanding our client base in this area, particularly francophone medical practices, which will complement our Montreal region,” added Jeremy Cole, Executive Vice President, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada.
Established in 2015, Stratège bolsters MNP’s ranks with a dedicated team of eight professionals, including two partners, delivering assurance, tax and advisory services, with a primary focus on serving medical professionals, as well as a number of small- to medium- sized businesses in other sectors within the Montreal region.
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, insolvency and restructuring, investigative and forensic accounting, technology solutions and cyber security, cross-border taxation, and much more.
“As part of MNP, our clients will benefit from access to over 200 professional advisors based in Montreal, as well as hundreds of MNP professionals and specialists across more than 60 Canadian locations coast to coast. As our clients grow, so does the complexity of their business requirements and we can now offer them more services than ever to help them meet their business objectives,” added Claudine Rochon, co-founding partner of Stratège.
MNP credits its strategic mergers and acquisitions, organic growth, value-added services and values-led culture for catapulting the firm to the highest year-over-year growth rates of any of Canada’s top accounting firms.
“To maintain our culture, we have been very strategic about who we invite to join our family,” said Cole. “Both our firms’ cultures and values are well aligned and we share the same entrepreneurial approach to doing business. It’s truly a win-win for both our firms and for our clients and other businesses in the Montreal marketplace. We are thrilled to have found the perfect firm to join forces with, one that, like MNP, always puts their clients first.”
