MNP, one of Canada’s largest national accounting and business consulting firms, is pleased to announce that it will be joining forces with Lise Deleurme Chartered Professional Accountant Inc. from Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes, Manitoba effective January 1, 2021. Lise says she and her team are delighted to be joining a like-minded firm in MNP that complements their current service offerings and has the same commitment to delivering personalized solutions to clients. MNP is excited to build on its fast-growing presence and commitment to the business community in southern Manitoba.

Unprecedented and dynamic market conditions are impacting the way all businesses must operate. Lise says the merger strengthens her team’s ability to help their clients achieve their goals:

“MNP complements and enhances our current service offerings and brings greater bench strength that will help us service clients across Manitoba. We believe that joining MNP is a perfect example of how we can come together to give our clients the edge they need to stay competitive and overcome current business and industry challenges in what is an historically unusual time for all organizations. By joining MNP we will add more resources and specialized services, which will help to provide our clients with even greater value in the future.”

Founded in 1958, MNP has grown to more than 80 locations across Canada and delivers a wide range of services and specialized expertise in every sector and area of business. In addition to tax and accounting expertise, MNP delivers a diverse range of advisory services, including succession planning, estate planning, enterprise risk, corporate finance, valuation and litigation support, insolvency and restructuring, technology solutions, cross-border taxation, and much more.

Not only is MNP the largest of the mid-market focused firms in Canada, it has continued to maintain its Canadian roots, helping Canadian businesses at home and abroad.

“We are growing fast but we’re absolutely committed to maintaining our culture and so have always been very strategic about who we invite to join our team,” adds Patti Bell, Regional Managing Partner, Southern Manitoba. “We are known across the communities we work with as being one of Canada’s most-trusted accounting, tax and business consulting firms, so we are excited to welcome in Lise Deleurme and her team members into the MNP family. Our cultures and values are well-aligned, and we share the same entrepreneurial, trusted approach to doing business.”

Lise says that one of her deciding factors to join MNP was the culture: “Although MNP is a large national firm, it’s always been known for being local in focus with a small-firm culture and commitment to supporting the local communities that its teams live and work in. This is something that is very important to me, and to our people, and so the ‘fit’ had to be right. I just felt that the chance to join a firm with the depth of resources that MNP offers, while maintaining our local focus, was a truly unique and exceptional opportunity.”

The Lise Deleurme Chartered Professional Accountant Inc. team will remain at their present locations and work closely with MNP’s existing teams across Manitoba to enjoy access to greater resources and services to help businesses across the province.

“This merger is truly a win-win for all of our firms and the broader Manitoba marketplace,” says Sean Wallace, MNP’s Executive Vice President, Prairies. “With skills and experiences across Manitoba we will be able to provide our clients with unparalleled access to teams who can help their organizations to succeed. We are thrilled to have found Lise Deleurme Chartered Professional Accountant Inc. to join forces with – a group that shares our values and is focused on putting clients first.”
